The stars ε Aur, KH 15D, and H 187 are utterly different in their fundamental characteristics. However, they share two important
features: (1) prolonged eclipses are observed in all three and (2) there are no spectroscopic signs of a second component.
The light curves of these objects are substantially similar, which may indicate a uniform mechanism for the eclipses. This
article analyzes models for eclipsing in these objects proposed by different authors and discusses the problems associated
with their application.
