J/AZh/78/1104    Age and metallicity in eclipsing binaries     (Kovaleva, 2001)

Age and metallicity estimates of intermediate mass stars in eclipsing binaries. Kovaleva D.A. <Astron. Zh. 78, 1104 (2001)> =2001AZh....78.1104K =2001ARep...45..972K
ADC_Keywords: Binaries, eclipsing ; Stars, ages ; Abundances Abstract: Based on the set of high accuracy observational data on the components of SB2 eclipsing binaries and the grid of stellar models calculated by Geneva group for the wide range of masses and abundances, we estimate most probable ages and metallicities for the 43 systems using constraints arising from common origin of the components.
