Hilditch is a goldmine of information about the interaction of binaries. It comprehensively reviews methods for calculating orbits, the Roche model, ideas about mass exchange and loss, methods for analysing light curves, the masses and dimensions of different binary systems, and imaging the surfaces of stars and accretion structures. Researchers will also find this to be an authoritative reference. Enough detail and rigor for the serious physicist, yet clearly written so even an enthusiast can follow every chapter Note: His treatment is closely tied to observational data, so that you will be motivated to follow the analyses he provides of light curve shapes.
