Abstract: Large survey observations such as the EROS, the MACHO and the OGLE projects have discovered eclipsing binaries and published their light curves in the extra galaxies. The light curves of the eclipsing binaries provide fundamental stellar parameters so that accumulation of the light curves will be very useful for the research of the stellar astronomy. However it requires a long time to analyze the light curves. Therefore we developed a new method to analyze the large number of light curves in the relatively short time period and present the photometric solutions by analyzing the light curves of eight eclipsing binaries whose mass ratio can be determined by photometric method, in the Small Magellan Cloud.
