Abstract: To study the light variations of eclipsing binaries one need to create an ensemble of model light curves. Hence these models contain numerous parameters solving these problem needs significant computing resources, so the parallelization seems quite obvious. During this project we would like to parallelize our code to an extent, temporarily determining the orbits via Kepler equation using Newton-Raphson method and the surface light intensity without feedback (e.g light reflexion) effects.
