TAUVEX and Its Contribution to Time Series Studies
Although not designed specifically for the study of time-dependent phenomena, TAUVEX will provide unique observations of photometric variability in the ultraviolet (UV). I describe TAUVEX, which will operate together with the other scientific instruments on the carrier satellite, the Space Observatory Spectrum X-γ (SRG). I concentrate specifically on time-dependent observations, emphasizing the projected capabilities and limitations. I then describe a few objects in which the UV variability is interesting, and point out the advantage of simultaneous observations with the high-energy imaging telescopes on board the SRG observatory.
