High inclination X-ray and cataclysmic binaries

Abstract:

An introduction is given to the fields of X-ray and cataclysmic binaries, low mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) and globular clusters. New observations of the W Vir star AC5 (=V86) are used show that it is probably the source of Hα emission previous authors have found in core of the globular cluster M15.

The first phase resolved optical spectroscopy of AC211, the optical counterpart of the X-ray source in M15, are presented, and its binary period discovered to be 9.l±0.5 hours. A re-anal...
