This timely volume provides the first comprehensive survey of cataclysmic variable stars, integrating theory and observation into a single, synthesised text.The flux- ratio diagram (Figure 2.21) shows that the disc gas contributing the IR is optically thick and at (6-8) x 103 E (Harlaftis et al. ... The IR light curve of U Gem ( Figure 1.26) is considerably distorted near the end of decline from an outburst; this is caused by increased ... Radii The rapid change in eclipse profile as the disc brightens during an outburst is shown for OY Car in Figure 3.13 (Vogt 1983b ).
