Paper Abstract

The capabilities of GI2T-REGAIN (Grand Interferometre a 2 Telescopes-REcombinateur du GrAnd INterferometre) interferometer are well suited for studying and understanding the morphology and physical processes of multiple systems. Thus we present the observing program we intend to carry out with this instrument. It will lead to an accurate determination of their fundamental parameters such as masses and sizes. Our program on interacting binaries will be coupled to a mass transfer model which can benefit from these observations.
