    cretion disc winds in low-mass X-ray binaries. Our main goal is to study the luminosity dependence of these out ows and compare with observations. The simulations span the range L acc=L Edd and therefore cover most of the parameter space in which disc winds have been observed. Using a detailed Monte Carlo treatment of ion-. Cataclysmic variables (CVs) are interacting binaries in which the accreting object (the primary) is a white dwarf (see Warner for a review). X-ray emission in CVs is most likely associated with the accretion process, which is capable of shock-heating accreted ma- terial up to high temperatures (IcTmax w keV). Their accretion geometry.

    Cataclysmic variables 5 slightly over-fill) their lobes the term contact binary is used. Post-common-envelope binaries (Section ) are generally detached, whereas CVs are semi-detached, with the red star filling its Roche lobe. (Contact binaries are also observed – the so-called W. The binary then may be identified as a low mass X-ray binary (LMXB). The evolution of the binaries with CP primaries as probable progenitors of cataclysmic variables (CV) has been discussed (King and Lasota, , Wickramasighe and Ferrario, , Sion, , Shylaja, ) in the context of magnetic cataclysmic variables (MCV).

    The complete catalog lists coordinates, apparent magnitudes, orbital parameters, stellar parameters of the components, and other characteristic properties of cataclysmic binaries, low-mass X-ray binaries, and related objects with known or suspected orbital periods. Inthefirstpartofthispaper, theRitter-Kolbcatalogue (RKcatfor short), itshistoryandafewexamplesofits application to research in the field of cataclysmic variables are briefly described. In a second part we look forward to possible future applications of RKcat for the study of cataclysmic variables, low-mass X-ray binaries and related objects.

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): We critically re-examine the available data on the spectral types, masses and radii of the secondary stars in cataclysmic variables (CVs) and low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs), using the new catalogue of Ritter & Kolb () as a starting point.

We find there are 55 reliable spectral type determinations and only Here in the Astrophysics Group at MSSL, we are studying a particularly interesting group of binary stars: the Cataclysmic Variables (or CVs for short).

In a CV binary, one star is a white dwarf: a collapsed star with the mass of the Sun in the volume of the Earth (our Sun will become a white dwarf in about four and a half billion years).

Cataclysmic variable stars are binary stars that consist of two components; a white dwarf primary, and a mass transferring secondary. The stars are so close to each other that the gravity of the white dwarf distorts the secondary, and the white dwarf accretes matter from the companion.

Therefore, the secondary is often referred to as the donor star. X-ray binaries are some of the most varied and perplexing systems known to astronomers. The compact object which accretes mass from its companion star may be a white dwarf, neutron star, or black hole, whereas the donor star can be a 'normal' star or a white dwarf.

The various combinations differ widely in their behaviour, and this timely volume provides a unique reference of our knowledge to Reviews: 1.

The idea to hold a conference on the Evolution of Close-Binary X-ray sources grew in the summer of At that time we were hoping that some new results would be harvested in the months to come which would stimulate further work.

We were particularly looking towards the Euro pean X-ray Observatory, EXOSAT, for new contributions. How lucky we were; quite unexpected developments.

Cataclysmic variables and low-mass X-ray binaries: proceedings of the 7th North American Workshop held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A., January[Donald Q Lamb; Joseph Patterson;]. X-ray binaries are a class of binary stars that are luminous in X-rays are produced by matter falling from one component, called the donor (usually a relatively normal star), to the other component, called the accretor, which is very compact: a neutron star or black infalling matter releases gravitational potential energy, up to several tenths of its rest mass, as X-rays.

In a low-mass X-ray binary (LMXB), an intense stellar wind from the mass donor may be a consequence of the absorption of X-rays from the mass-accreting neutron star or black hole, and such a wind could change the evolution of these binaries dramatically compared with the evolution of cataclysmic variables (CVs), which are close binaries in.

Cataclysmic Variables and Low-Mass X-Ray Binaries: Proceedings of the 7th North American Workshop held in Campbridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A., January[Donald Q Lamb; Joseph Patterson] -- Since a meeting devoted to recent research on cataclysmic variables ("CV workshop") has been held annually somewhere in North America.

Among hard X-ray Galactic sources detected with the Swift and INTEGRAL surveys, those discovered as accreting white dwarf binaries have surprisingly boosted in number in the recent years.

The majority are identified as magnetic Cataclysmic Variables of the Intermediate Polar type, suggesting this subclass as an important constituent of the Galactic population of X-ray sources.The X-Ray Eclipsing Cataclysmic Variable 1H+ Pages U Sco Type Recurrent Nova as a Progenitor of the Halo Type Low Mass X-ray Binaries.
