Pulsation analysis of the high amplitude δ Scuti star CW Serpentis

Jia-Shu Niu, Jian-Ning Fu, Wei-Kai Zong


Time-series photometric observations were made for the high amplitude δ Scuti star CW Ser between 2011 and 2012 at the Xinglong Station of National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences. After performing the frequency analysis of the light curves, we confirmed the fundamental frequency of f = 5.28677 c d−1, together with seven harmonics of the fundamental frequency, which are newly detected. No additional frequencies were detected. The O − C diagram, produced with the 21 newly determined times of maximum light combined with those provided in the literature, helps to obtain a new ephemeris formula of the times of maximum light with the pulsation period of 0.189150355 ± 0.000000003 d.
