Cataclysmic Variables

A large proportion of my research activity has concentrated on Cataclysmic Variables.

A good introduction can be found at the MSSL Begininers guide to CVs.

I used to keep a page at MSSL which listed all the known polars. This page and been moved, here, to Armagh and i'll endeavour to up-date it!

At Goddard Koji Mukai keeps a similar set of pages for intermediate polars.

There are so many different combinations of binaries - different types of stellar components - magnetic field/no magnetic field, that its sometimes difficult to remember what they're all called. This table might be able to clarify things.
