About this book Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) are well furnished laboratories in which one can investigate a number of important physical processes.   Cataclysmic variables allow, in particular, the direct and detailed study of equilibrium and non-equilibrium accretion discs; in turn these developments also help The study of cataclysmic variables - interacting binary stars containing a white dwarf accreting from an orbiting companion - is undergoing an exciting renaissance, as it embraces observations at all 4/5(2). Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) are well furnished laboratories in which one can investigate a number of important physical processes. These processes include: thermonuclear reactions, nebular physics, wi Cataclysmic Variables | SpringerLink Skip to . ' this book remains the most comprehensive single text on the subject of cataclysmic variables Although the number and typology of cataclysmic variables we now know has increased since this book was published, the science and descriptions of the binary systems in this volume remain as relevant today as when it was published in Cited by:

  That study has led to an understanding of cataclysmic variables as binary stars, orbiting so closely that material transfers from one star to the other. The resulting process of accretion is one of the most important in astrophysics. This book presents the first account of cataclysmic variables at an introductory by: The most comprehensive reference on CVs is Brian Warner's book Cataclysmic Variable Stars, Cambridge University Press, The most up-to-date catalogue of CVs, Low Mass X-ray Binaries and related objects, compiled by Hans Ritter and Ulrich Kolb, is now available. This timely volume provides the first comprehensive survey of cataclysmic variable stars, integrating theory and observation into a single, synthesised text. in Cataclysmic variable stars Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics Pulsations in classical and cataclysmic variable stars.   There are two principal energy sources in a cataclysmic variable: accretion and nuclear fusion. Since the white dwarf is very dense, the gravitational potential energy is enormous, and it is converted into X-rays during the accretion process.
