Abstract

The rotation of close binary system components is investigated. The principal physical characteristics as well as the equatorial rotational velocities and the axial and orbital inclinations for 46 close binary systems were determined. It is found that the rotation axes of the individual stars in a pair cross the orbital plane under different angles. As a rule, the rotation and orbital periods of a vast majority of the systems investigated here do not coincide.
