SBS: Spectroscopic Binary Solver

D.O. Johnson

Spectroscopic Binary Solver is a Microsoft Visual Basic© software application used to determine the orbital parameters of a binary star system based on observed radial velocities. SBS is an interactive process facilitated by the use of real-time graphical controls and data presentation, as opposed to a computer solution that simply produces a numerical output. This paper describes the software functions, and is accompanied by an installer and example data for various case studies.
