  • EC 10246-2707: a new eclipsing sdB + M dwarf binary⋆ 

    Barlow, B.N.; Kilkenny, David; Drechsel, H.; Dunlap, B.H. (OUP, 2013)
    We announce the discovery of a new eclipsing hot subdwarf B + M dwarf binary, EC 10246-2707, and present multi-colour photometric and spectroscopic observations of this system. Similar to other HW Vir-type binaries, the ...
  • The ongoing pursuit of R Coronae Borealis stars: the ASAS-3 survey strikes again 

    Tisserand, P.; Clayton, G.; Kilkenny, David; Welch, D. L.; Wyrzykowsk, L.; Pilecki, B. (EDP Sciences, 2013)
    CONTEXT: R Coronae Borealis stars( RCBs) are rare, hydrogen-deficient, carbon rich super giant variable stars that are likely the evolved merger products of pairs of CO and He white dwarfs. Only 55 RCB stars have been found ...
  • Periodic variations in the O-C diagrams of five pulsation frequencies of the DB white dwarf EC 20058-5234 

    Dalessio, J.; Sullivan, D. J.; Kilkenny, David; Provencal, J. L.; Shipman, H. L.; Sullivan, T.; Fraga, L.; Sefako, R. (American Physical Society, 2013)
    Variations in the pulsation arrival time of five independent pulsation frequencies of the DB white dwarf EC 20058−5234 individually imitate the effects of reflex motion induced by a planet or companion but are inconsistent ...
  • Spectroscopy of the variable K-dwarf UNSW-V-760: is it a pre-main-sequence pulsator? 

    Koen, Chris; Gray, Richard O.; Kawaler, S.; Crawford, S. M. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
    The star UNSW-V-760 is a known variable, showing both flares and two non-sinusoidal periodicities. Availability of high signal-to-noise spectra reported in this paper has enabled a revision of the spectral type of this ...
