Am stars in binary systems

Iliev, I. Kh.; Budaj, Jan


It is argued that apart from the well known dependence of the Am phenomenon on mass, age (effective temperature, gravity) and rotation there is also a complex dependence on the orbital parameters in binary systems. This is why the generally accepted scenario in which the Am star's rotation plays a unique role needs to be revisited, the strong correlations between the rotation, orbital period and eccentricity need to be properly addressed, and tidal effects should be taken into account.
