Light-curve solutions for S Cancri and TT Hydrae with rapid rotationPhysical model light- and velocity-curve solutions for S Cancri and TT Hydrae are obtained, and analyses with incorporation of asynchronous rotation are carried out. A photometric rotation rate for the primary star of TT Hya is determined, and excellent agreement with results from spectral line profiles is found. Both separate light- and velocity-curve solutions and simultaneous light-velocity solutions are listed. The photometric rotation for S Cnc from existing light curves is indeterminate, but is compatible with line profile measures. Evidence for third light from the light curves of S Cnc is found. An explanation for the apparent conflict between the rotational states and mass-transfer activities of the two binaries is suggested.
