IUE Spectra of Cataclysmic Variables: Observational Results and Theoretical Implications

  • C. A. La Dous
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 319)


The impact of observations with the IUE Satellite on research in dwarf novae and nova-like stars is reviewed. Various kinds of observational phenomena are presented and their theoretical implications are discussed. Special emphasis is put on so far unsolved theoretical problems they pose, as well as on the still largely unexploited collective statistical information content of the data archive.
