The semi-detached binary system IU Per and its intrinsic oscillation
【摘要】：We present a long-term time-resolved photometry of the short-period eclipsing binary IU Per. It confirms the intrinsic δ Scuti-like pulsation of the system reported by Kim et al. . With the obtained data, an orbital period study and an eclipsing light curve synthesis based on the Wilson-Devinney method were carried out. The photometric so-lution reveals a semi-detached configuration with the less-massive component filling its own Roche-lobe. By subtracting the eclipsing light changes from the data, we obtained the pure pulsating light curve of the mass-accreting primary component. A Fourier anal-ysis reveals four pulsation modes with confidence larger than 99%. A mode identification based on the results of the photometric solution was made. It suggests that the star may be in radial pulsation with a fundamental period of about 0.0628d. A brief discussion concerning the evolutionary status and the pulsation nature is finally given.
