42. Close Binary Stars (Etoiles Binaires Serrees)

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  25 April 2016


Extract

By the end of the XXth General Assembly in Baltimore, the number of Commission 42 members had increased to 305. Subsequently, D. Ya. Martynov has died and 11 new members have been added.

The last Draft Report showed a healthy rate of growth in citations of Sections 117 (Close Binaries), 119 (Eclipsing Binaries), and 120 (Spectroscopic Binaries) of Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts from 1982 through 1986. The number of these citations has continued the mean trend with 976 and 1015 references for 1987 and 1988, respectively. As the Past-President remarked, these counts are considerable underestimates of the total literature concerning close binaries (hereafter, CB’s). A personal appreciation of the total corpus of work is that quality remains very high and content has become much richer as more and more associations have been made with generalized stellar studies. In part, this may be traced to the everincreasing awareness by the general community of the experiments in stellar evolution which Nature runs in CB’s.
