"Complex evolutionary and asteroseismic modelling of pulsating components in eclipsing binary systems"

Amadeusz Miszuda (CAMK, Warsaw)

Eclipsing binary systems are well-proven benchmarks in testing stellar evolution theory. Precise stellar parameters that can come from their analysis aid systems' age determination along with tracing back their evolution history. Eclipsing binaries that contain pulsating components are a special subclass of binaries that combine information coming from orbital and pulsational analyses. Whereas the single-star pulsators are rather well understood, the precise effect that binarity and possible mass transfer have on the pulsational characteristics of components has yet to be determined. In my talk, I will highlight some of the most important results from my studies of pulsating components in binary systems. In particular I will discuss the effect that accumulation of He in outer layers of accretor caused by mass transfer has on excitation of the high radial-order g modes in models of delta Scuti stars and the evolution of radial mode frequencies during the main sequence evolutionary phase.
