Abstract

This study concerns the long-term monitoring of the secular variation character in the orbital period of some short-period eclipsing binaries observed at the Ankara University Observatory. Among the systems of our observing list are CK Boo, V502 Oph and V836 Cyg that show long-term secular variations in their orbital periods. We use classical O-C diagram analysis technique as a tool to reveal the character of the period variations of these binary systems.
