|Abstract||EXOSAT soft X-ray spectra of three binary systems of cool stars are analyzed: Capella (G6 III + F9 III), Sigma-squared CrB (F8 V + G1 V), and Procyon (F5 IV-V + DF). The EXOSAT transmission grating spectrometer permits the study of individual spectral lines and line complexes between 10 and 200 A with approximately 3 A resolution. First it is demonstrated that the spectra can be described reasonably well by a two-temperature model corona. Then the assumption that only two temperatures exist in the stellar coronas is relaxed and differential emission measure distributions are derived from the three spectra. The results from the multithermal modeling are consistent with those of the two-temperature models: emission from the coronas of each of the three stars is dominated by plasma in two relative narrow temperature intervals. These intervals are centered on 5 MK and 25 MK in the cases of Capella and Sigma-squared CrB, and 0.6 MK and 3 MK in the case of Procyon. The implications of the results for the structure of stellar coronas are briefly discussed. 41 refs.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
