The Kepler eclipsing binary catalog was compiled by members of the Kepler science team, both as a reference for groups interested in eclisping binaries, and as part of understanding the false-positive statistics for planet detection. The NASA Exoplanet Archive includes eclipsing binary information only for those stars identified as such.

The following table describes the data column names of the eclipsing binary (centroid) information in the archive.

Column Name | Description |
---|---|

kepid | Kepler unique identification number |

ebid | Unique eclipsing binary identifier |

ebtype | Designation of the morphology type:D = detached SD = semi-detachedOC = overcontact ELV = ellipsoidal ? = uncertain |

ebepoch | Epoch of eclipse (BKJD = BJD - 2454833.0) |

ebperiod | Transit period of system (days) |

ebteffr | Ratio of Effective Temperature of stars in the system |

ebfracsrad | Sum of fractional stellar radii |

ebmassr | Ratio of stellar mass |

ebesinw | radial component of eccentricity (e sin(omega)) component fit |

ebecosw | tangential component of eccentricity (e cos(omega)) component fit |

ebsini | Sine of orbital inclination |

ebff | Fillout factor (F = (Omega - Omega_L2)/(Omega_L1 -x Omega_L2), where Omega is the gravity potential) |
