Radio Imaging of Symbiotic Stars

  • A. R. Taylor
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 145)


A brief review of radio observations of individual symbiotic stars is presented, with emphasis on radio imaging of the circumstellar nebulae. The ionized nebulae are catagorized into two types: outburst ejecta and stellar winds. Among the ejecta-type there is a strong tendency for bipolar or jet morphology. In the case of the quiescent, stellar wind emitter, a few very wide binary systems (eg. H1-36) offer the potential of directly viewing the effects of the binary interaction.
