Mean Intensity Magnitude of Variable Star

  1. Jun 14, 2009 #1
    How do I calculate the mean phase-weighted intensity magnitude of a variable star? I.e., if I have binned (magnitude) data points over the whole light curve, how do I change those magnitudes to intensities so that I can get the average intensity and then convert that value back to a magnitude?
