This website provides both basic and advanced information on: simple models for computing light curves, a power point presentation on binary stars, student exercises, modeling close binary stars, and the shape of a rotating star. It also contains a free download of StarLight Pro which is software that produces animated views of eclipsing binary stars and calculates synthetic lightcurves. The effects of limb darkening, temperature, inclination, stellar size, mass ratio, and star shape are included.
