J/other/A+ARV/18.67  Accurate masses and radii of normal stars (Torres+, 2010)

Accurate masses and radii of normal stars: modern results and applications. Torres G., Andersen J., Gimenez A. <Astron. Astrophys. Rev., 18, 67-126 (2010)> =2010A&ARv..18...67T
ADC_Keywords: Binaries, eclipsing ; Binaries, spectroscopic ; Stars, masses ; Stars, diameters Keywords: stars: fundamental parameters - stars: binaries: eclipsing - stars: binaries: spectroscopic - stars: interiors - stars: evolution Abstract: This article presents and discusses a critical compilation of accurate, fundamental determinations of stellar masses and radii. We have identified 95 detached binary systems containing 190 stars (94 eclipsing systems, and alpha Centauri) that satisfy our criterion that the mass and radius of both stars be known within errors of ±3% accuracy or better. All of them are non-interacting systems, and so the stars should have evolved as if they were single. This sample more than doubles that of the earlier similar review by Andersen (Astron. Astrophys. Rev. 3:91-126, 1991), extends the mass range at both ends and, for the first time, includes an extragalactic binary. In every case, we have examined the original data and recomputed the stellar parameters with a consistent set of assumptions and physical constants. File Summary:

Note (1): indicative of the degree of central density concentration of the component stars. Note (2): Flag as follows: 0 = Apsidal motion not detected 1 = Rotational axes misaligned 2 = Apsidal motion dominated by General Relativity component 3 = Significance of apsidal motion too low for reliable determination of logk2
