Determination of stellar physical parameters using VOSA
[ASTERICS VO School, Nov 2018]
This tutorial uses the advanced VO functionalities of VOSA (VO Sed Analyzer) and TOPCAT to determine empirically the masses and radii of stars surrounded by planets. The user needs to register to get access to the functionalities of VOSA (online tool). They can then upload a list of objects to study, build their SEDs and analyze them (by fitting models). Using the interoperability between VOSA and TOPCAT, the user can compare the empiral values obtained with VOSA to those published in papers.
