The braking of wind

Abstract:
I outline a model that gives the mass-loss rate and the magnetic torque on a magnetically active star, as functions of only the mass, luminosity, radius and rotation period. With tidal friction to enforce corotation, this can be applied to a number of types of binary, including contact binaries, RS CVn binaries, Algols, CVs and LMXBs.
