6. Summary and conclusions
I have shown that any event involving a blended single source can also be explained by a (non-blended) binary source and argued that most of the binary source events could be successfully explained by a blended single source. This may explain the lack of events which have been claimed as being due to binary sources. This also shows, that due to the intrinsic similarity of light curves of blended single sources and non-blended binary sources, it is difficult to distinguish between these effects.
