Abstract / Description:We report the discovery and characterization of a new M-dwarf binary, with component masses and radii of M_1 = 0.244_{-0.003}^{+0.003} M_{&sun;}, R_1 = 0.261_{-0.009}^{+0.006} R_{&sun;}, M_2 = 0.179_{-0.001}^{+0.002} M_{&sun;}, R_2 = 0.218 _{-0.011}^{+0.007} R_{&sun;}, and orbital period of ˜4.1 d. The M-dwarf binary HATS551-027 (LP 837-20) was identified as an eclipsing binary by the HATSouth survey, and characterized by a series of high-precision photometric observations of the eclipse events, and spectroscopic determinations of the atmospheric parameters and radial velocity orbits. HATS551-027 is one of few systems with both stellar components lying in the fully convective regime of very low mass stars, and can serve as a test for stellar interior models. The radius of HATS551-027A is consistent with models to 1sigma, whilst HATS551-027B is inflated by 9 per cent at 2sigma significance. We measure the effective temperatures for the two stellar components to be Teff, 1 = 3190 ± 100 K and Teff, 2 = 2990 ± 110 K; both are slightly cooler than theoretical models predict, but consistent with other M-dwarfs of similar masses that have previously been studied. We also measure significant H alpha emission from both components of the binary system, and discuss this in the context of the correlation between stellar activity and the discrepancies between the observed and model temperatures.
