The Contribution of Amateur Astronomers to the Study of Variable Stars
The observation of variable stars is one of the most important and the most fruitful areas of stellar astronomy. The contribution of large numbers of visual observations is a determining factor in drawing up light-curves, the latter being the key to the interpretation of the process of variability within these stars.
