Abstract: We describe improvements in the Python-based analysis code ANGORA (Analyzing the period chanGes Of binaRy stArs), a useful tool for modeling the orbital period variations (O–C) of eclipsing binary stars. ANGORA can be used to reveal the underlying origin of such variations by taking into account well-known physical mechanisms (e.g., mass transfer, LITE) individually or in combination. We provide an overview of the ANGORA code, together with applications to a few eclipsing binary stars.
