Variability of X-Ray Emission from Cen X-3 Observed with Ginga



Simplified stellar models like as one-zone models can be oscillated in chaotic state (Saitou et al. 1989). It is natural to consider that the irregular variations of Galactic X-ray sources might be caused from nonlinear oscillation of accretion disks or related flow. We studied the variability of Cen X-3 for applying the nonlinear theory to it.
