Not-so-simple triple systems

Abstract:

We model the evolution of binary orbits in hierarchical triple stars using a force law which includes a combination of point-mass gravity, quadrupolar distortion of the stars due to each other as well as to their intrinsic spin, a dissipative tidal friction term, and general relativity. We apply this model to the binary orbit in the present day Algol (beta Per) as well as to hypothetical young Algol models with a detached binary of two ZAMS stars. We find that although at present the semi-det...
