The Discovery and Observation of Multiple Stellar Systems

  • A. H. Batten (a1) and C. D. Scarfe (a2)

Abstract

The difficulties of discovering and observing multiple stellar systems are reviewed and discussed with especial reference to those systems which are best observed by a combination of visual and spectroscopic or visual and photometric means. Attention is drawn to the difficulties that often exist in reconciling the results of two different methods of observation. A brief discussion of the possibility of detecting spectroscopically invisible companions of low mass is included in the paper.

Resumen

Se ha hecho una reseña de las dificultades que se presentan en el descubrimiento y observación de sistemas estelares múltiples, con especial énfasis en aquellos sistemas que se observan mejor mediante una combinación de métodos visuales y espectroscópicos, o bien, visuales y fotométricos. Se destacan las dificultades que existen a menudo en el proceso de hacer compatibles los resultados de los dos diferentes métodos de observación. Se incluye también una breve discusión de la posibilidad de detectar espectroscópicamente compañeras invisibles de poca masa.
