Description

Context: Rare types of variable stars may provide unique insight into short-lived stages of stellar evolution. The systematic monitoring of millions of stars and advanced light curve analysis techniques of microlensing surveys make them ideal for discovering such rare variable stars. One example is the R Coronae Borealis (RCB) stars, a rare type of evolved carbon-rich supergiant. Aims: We have conducted a systematic search of the EROS-2 database for the Galactic catalogue Bulge and spiral arms...[Show more]
