Fourier analysis of the light curves of eclipsing variables, XX

  • Huseyin Alkan


In the present paperα n 0 , for occulation and transit eclipses of partial phases, are evaluated numerically by means of the Runge-Kutta methods. Section 2 contains the required differential equations ofα n 0 with respect to the modulusX orC, and Section 3 includes the numerical method of the solutions of these differential equations. Theoretical values ofα 0 0 andα 1 0 , with corresponding values ofC, are also added in this section.
