A triple star origin for T Pyx and other short-period recurrent novae

Abstract:

Recurrent novae are star systems in which a massive white dwarf accretes material at such a high rate that it undergoes thermonuclear runaways every 1-100 yr. They are the only class of novae in which the white dwarf can grow in mass, making some of these systems strong Type Ia supernova progenitor candidates. Almost all known recurrent novae are long-period (Porb ? 12h) binary systems in which the requisite mass supply rate can be provided by an evolved (sub-)giant donor star. However, at le...
