In search of binaries among RV Tauri stars without dust

Project: 
In the first stage of this project the student will review the literature on RV Tauri stars and late stages of stellar evolution. The student will then proceed to analyzing spectroscopic data of a few non-IR objects obtained from the Belgian Mercator Telescope operated in Spain. The aim is to detect radial-velocity shifts in a sample of non-IR RV Tauri systems in order to identify potential binary candidates for a future follow-up.
