The gravity-darkening of highly distorted stars in close binary systems. VI. Practical analysis of early-type contact systems with spectraltypes later than B1.
From analysis of the observed ellipticity effect, empirical values of the exponent of effective gravity-darkening, α, have been deduced for early-type contact systems with spectral types later than B1 for which the effect of radiation pressure may be neglected.
