Multiwavelength SED as a Tool in Understanding Outbursts of Symbiotic Binaries

A. Skopal
Published Online: 2017-03-23 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/astro-2017-0363


Symbiotic binaries consist of a few sources of radiation contributing to spectral energy distribution (SED) from hard X-rays to radio wavelengths. To identify the basic physical processes forming the observed spectrum, we have to disentangle the composite SED into its individual components of radiation, i.e., to determine their physical parameters. Spectral disentangling of different objects at different stages of activity allows us to understand the mechanism of their outbursts. In this contribution I demonstrate the method of multiwave-length modeling SEDs on the example of two classical symbiotic stars, AG Dra and Z And.
