The best match between the synthetic light curves and the observed light curves of binary IK Boo. The rectangle shows a hump like distortion in all the LCs.
Light curve analysis
The observed light curves of IK Boo indicate typical short period (7 h . 27) W UMa eclipsing binary with narrow minima and broad maxima. To find the geometrical and physical parameters for the system, we proceed to solve the light curves simultaneously using the software PHOEBE (Prša and Zwitter [ 19 ]).
First, we have to
