Cataclysmic Variables — Selected Problems

  • G. A. Richter
Part of the Reviews in Modern Astronomy book series (MOD.ASTRONOMY, volume 5)


Two hitherto neglected features of cataclysmic variables are discussed: (1) dependence of cycle-length on orbital period and brightness amplitude in dwarf novae eruptions and (2) the dip in the descending branch of superout-burst light-curves of WZ Sagittae stars.
