Understanding the Long-term Evolution of CVs and LMXBs: Principles and Problems

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 208)

Abstract

We introduce the standard model for formation and evolution of CVs, and show how observed collective properties compare with theoretically predicted population models. A short overview relates LMXBs to CVs.
