Starspot Effects in Microlensing Events

Starspot induced effects in microlensing events with rotating source star


Giordano et al


We consider the effects induced by the presence of hot and cold spots on the source star in the light curves of simulated microlensing events due to either single or binary lenses taking into account the rotation of the source star and the orbital motion of the lens system. Our goal is to study the anomalies induced by these effects on simulated microlensing light curves.
