Continuum Spectra of Accretion Discs
Accretion discs have come to be known as a frequent phenomenon in astrophysics (Frank, King and Raine 1985). While accretion discs are of various dimensions, scales, temperatures and so on, we limit the discussion here to accretion discs around white dwarfs. Extension of the present discussion to other conditions, in particular accretion discs in premain sequence stars and self gravitating accretion discs, will be made in subsequent communications.
