|I present the discovery of a pulsating component in light variations of the known eclipsing binary NSV 10993 based on the NSVS and ASAS-3 publicly available data.|
The variability of NSV 10993 = S 4320 = GSC 1032-01378 was
discovered by Hoffmeister (1949). Later the star was
re-investigated by Götz & Wenzel (1956). In both papers, their
authors ascribe the variable to eclipsing binaries, possibly to
the W UMa stars. According to Otero & Wils (2005), NSV 10993 is
an EA eclipsing binary with the elements:
I re-analysed the NSVS and ASAS-3 data (NSVS 10974803, NSVS
11094130, and ASAS 183213+1217.1) using the WINEFK package by
Dr. V.P. Goranskij and found pulsations superposing the eclipsing
light curve. The light elements of the eclipsing and pulsating
components of the light variations are the following:
From these results, we may consider the system as a good candidate to eclipsing binaries with a Cepheid component, similar to the recently discovered variable TYC 1031 01262 1 (Antipin et al., 2007).
