Recurrent novae: Type Ia supernovae in the making

Abstract:

We have constructed theoretical light curves for recurrent nova outbursts based on a thermonuclear runaway model. Fitting theoretical light curves with the observations of the eight known recurrent novae provides us with important information about these systems including the mass of the white dwarf, envelope mass at optical maximum, hydrogen content of the white dwarf envelope, and so on. The mass of the white dwarf ranges from 1.35-1.37 M. for seven recurrent novae except for T Pyx which ha...
