Abstract (from CDS):

Several binaries with masses anomalously small for their observed spectral types have been discussed in the astronomical literature and interpreted as the result of envelope ejection. V379 Cep is one of these objects. We obtained new series of electronic spectra and UBV photometry of V379 Cep and analysed them in an effort to check whether the conclusion about its anomalous masses may not be premature. Reduction of new spectra was carried out in the IRAF and SPEFO programs. New photometry was reduced and transformed to the standard system using the HEC22 program. Orbital elements were derived with the FOTEL program and via disentangling with the program KOREL. The final combined solution was obtained with the program PHOEBE. Some initial period searches were carried out using the phase dispersion minimalization technique. We found that the second system of spectral lines seen in the spectra of V379 Cep does not belong to the secondary but to the primary of another binary Ba+Bb (orbital period of 158.71d±0.17d), which constitutes a quadruple system with the narrow-lined 99.7638d±0.0006d eclipsing binary Aa+Ab (for which we report probable detection of the secondary and derive improved period and orbital elements). The mutual motion of the two binaries A+B around the common centre of gravity is also observable, and the probable orbital period is (7878±77) days. Our result shows that the components Aa and Ba are somewhat evolved but removes the reported discrepancy of anomalously small masses. We find that V379 Cep is an astrophysically interesting quadruple system for which a future combination of interferometry, spectroscopy, and photometry can provide individual masses of all four bodies.
