Abstract (from CDS):
Subdwarf (sdB) stars include core helium-burning stars with a very thin hydrogen envelope that lies at the blue end of the horizontal branch (or extreme horizontal branch). Among them, short-period sdB binaries especially with cool companions are significant to test and constrain binary evolution. We discuss one such sdB+dM type binary, TYC 3315-1807-1 (V1), which was first reported by Kawka. Results of the photometric analysis on Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite data are being reported. Light variation in the light curve suggests that the system displays a large reflection effect with no eclipses. Spectroscopic observations of the object were also carried out to probe into the nature of secondary companion as well as to understand the post-common-envelope evolution of such objects. The variability in Balmer, He, and Na line profiles as a function of phase, probably caused by observed reflection effect was identified and studied. Period variation study of the object was done using times of minima obtained from the literature and the O - C plot was produced, which points to a decrease in the period (dp/dt = -1.36315 x 10–7 day yr–1), and the possible scenario of evolution is discussed. From the evolutionary models, we constrain the possible mass of the sdB to be 0.274 M☉ and that of the secondary is 0.113 M☉, and we conclude that V1 may evolve directly as a helium-core white dwarf.
