Byline:
M. Belloni
Post a comment | Relations
Eclipsing Binary Stars model simulates the detection of eclipsing binary stars. In this method, the light curve from the combination of the two stars, and how it changes over time…
Stellar Blackbody Radiation Curves  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni
Post a comment | Relations
The Stellar Blackbody Radiation Curves model simulates the blackbody radiation curve of stars and how this leads to the observed color and luminosity of the star. If a star can be…

Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni
Post a comment | Relations
The Hertzsprung–Russell (H-R) Diagrams model simulates Hertzsprung–Russell (HR or H-R) diagram for groups of stars. The diagram is a scatter plot of steller luminosity vs. stellar…
