Abstract

The class of variable typified by UX Orionis (UXORs or UXors) are young stars characterised by aperiodic or semiperiodic fades from maximum. This has led to several of the class being formerly catalogued as Algol-type eclipsing binaries (EAs), which can show superficially similar light variations. With this in view, I propose a campaign to search for more UX Ori type stars.
