Commission 26: Double and Multiple Stars Etoiles Doubles et Multiples
The last years have been an exciting time in double and multiple star research, both observationally and theoretically, with the continued development and use of powerful new observational tools, as well as for the insights gained concerning binary star formation and evolution. In addition to many new results in the literature, two colloquia have greatly contributed to this: “The Origins, Evolution, and Destinies of Binary Stars in Clusters”, held at the University of Calgary (Canada) in June, 1995, and the workshop “Visual Double Stars: Formation, Dynamics, and Evolutionary Tracks”, held at the University of Santiago (Spain) in July, 1996.
