Elo~adás címe: **Extensive spectroscopic and photometric study of HD 25558, a long orbital period double-lined binary with two SPB components? *
Our project aims at investigating main-sequence g-mode pulsators in detail by collecting and analysing time-series of photometric and high-resolution spectroscopic measurements. In this talk, I introduce the project and the results obtained for the SPB (Slowly Pulsating B star) system, HD 25558. The investigation of the ~2000 spectra obtained at 13 observatories during 5 observing seasons, the ground-based multi-colour light curves and the photometric data from the MOST stellite revealed that this object is a double-lined spectroscopic binary with a very long orbital period of about 9 years. We determined the physical parameters of the components individually, and have found that both lie within the SPB instability strip. Accordingly, both components show line-profile variations consistent with stellar pulsations. Altogether, 11 independent frequencies were identified. The observational data do not allow the inference of a reliable orbital solution, thus, disentangling cannot be performed on the spectra. Since the lines of the two components are never completely separated, the analysis is very complicated. Nevertheless, pixel-by-pixel variation analysis of the cross-correlated line profiles was succesful, and we were able to attribute all the frequencies either to the primary or to the secondary component. Both spectroscopic and photometric mode-identification was also performed for several of these frequencies of both binary components. Comparison of the mode-identification results on the two components suggests some properties of a mode-selection mechanism in action.
