Find eclipsing binaries
From VVV Survey
Goal 3: To find eclipsing binaries
We expect roughly 5×105 binaries, an unprecedented database that will allow to: determine periods, amplitudes, mean magnitudes, study stellar properties, and also select extrasolar planetary transit candidates. In particular, YY Gem-like systems can be identified to constrain the lower main-sequence parameters, and selected transit fields can be followed frequently to identify and measure extrasolar giant planets.
