Nova outbursts and the CV mass transfer rate spectrum

Abstract:

I investigate variations of the mass transfer rate in cataclysmic variables (CVs) induced by nova outbursts. The ballistic ejection of nova shells leads to a spectrum of observed transfer rates in a sample of systems with similar orbital period. I present an analytical model and show that the effect is negligible below the period gap and for CVs with high-mass white dwarfs. If the orbital period is longer than 3 hr, the mass transfer rate spectrum has an effective width in excess of an order ...
