[18.13] Solutions for eclipsing binaries of the bulge fields in OGLE II using the Detached Eclipsing Binary Light curve fitter (DEBiL)

J. Devor (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)

We created the fully automated Detached Eclipsing Binary Light curve fitter (DEBiL), which is designed to rapidly fit large numbers of light curves to a simple model. Using the results of DEBiL, light curves of interest can be located for follow-up analysis. As a test case, we analyzed the 218699 light curves within the bulge fields of the OGLE II survey and produced 10862 model fits. We point out a small number of extreme examples as well as unexpected structure found in several of the population distributions. We expect this approach to become increasingly useful as light curve datasets continue growing in both size and number.
