Tidal Fluxes and Evolution of Binary Star Systems
Abstract
Explicit analytical expressions for the tidal velocities in the stars which are components of the binary system are obtained, taking into account the viscosity of the stellar matter, the star's rotation, the eccentricity of the orbit and tilt of the axis of rotation to the orbital plane. Equations which determine the tidal evolution of the star's axial and orbital motions are obtained and analyzed. Numerical solutions of these equations are analyzed.
