When leaving the Victoria airport the day earlier than our Colloquium, I observed a van of the Dunsmuir hotel marked with vast letters which I learn as "Alcohol Colloquium". I do usually make such error as a result of the worldwide, informal, and careless manner during which I learn a variety of advertisements, and checked myself speedy to learn it accurately as "Algol Colloquium". thousands of fellow electorate may simply make an identical mistake, and no apology might be anticipated.

Being appointed Chairman of the clinical Organizing Committee, i'll be deemed to be a purer" Algolist" than different investigators, even if my diversity of lively pursuits is way broader; and a similar is right approximately all of the 28 invited audio system and all of the different contributors of the Colloquium. Our curiosity are strongly diverse, yet there are a number of solid purposes that introduced us jointly at this Colloquium.

1988, 1989), and Cugier and Holaro (1983, 1984). 3. 93 day period eclipsing binary Beta lyrae was discovered as a variable star over 200 years ago by John Goodricke in 1784 and is the subject of more published papers than any other star except the Sun. An excellent comprehensive review of the system was made by Sahade (1980) while a more succinct summary is given by Sahade and Wood (1978). The current wisdom on Beta lyrae is that it is a rapidly evolving binary composed of a B8I1 star in contact with its Roche lobe and a more massive BO-B2V?
