An Extended Grid of Nova Models. II. The Parameter Space of Nova Outbursts
This paper is a sequel to an earlier paper devoted to multiple, multicycle nova evolution models (Prialnik & Kovetz, Paper I), which showed that the different characteristics of nova outbursts can beExpand

Non-gravitational acceleration in the trajectory of 1I/2017 U1 (‘Oumuamua)
TLDR
‘Oumuamua—the first known interstellar object to have entered the Solar System—is probably a comet, albeit with unusual dust and chemical properties owing to its origin in a distant solar system. Expand
The contribution of icy grains to the activity of comets: I. Grain lifetime and distribution
Abstract We have developed a computer code (GEM—grain evolution model) to simulate the behavior of ice grains in a comet coma. The grains are assumed to be composed of water–ice with an admixture ofExpand
Modeling the structure and activity of comet nuclei
Numerical simulation of the structure and evolution of a comet nucleus is reviewed from both the mathematical and the physical point of view. Various mathematical procedures and approximations areExpand
GROWING WHITE DWARFS TO THE CHANDRASEKHAR LIMIT: THE PARAMETER SPACE OF THE SINGLE DEGENERATE SN Ia CHANNEL
Can a white dwarf, accreting hydrogen-rich matter from a non-degenerate companion star, ever exceed the Chandrasekhar mass and explode as a type Ia supernova? We explore the range of accretion ratesExpand
Heat and Gas Diffusion in Comet Nuclei
The Evolution of a Classical Nova Model through a Complete Cycle
A classical nova model is evolved through a complete cycle, including accretion leading to outburst, mass loss, accretion again, ending in another outburst. Mass loss is found to occur in threeExpand
Structure and Evolution of Kuiper Belt Objects and Dwarf Planets
Kuiper belt objects (KBOs) accreted from a melange of volatile ices, carbonaceous matter, and rock of mixed interstellar and solar nebular provenance. The transneptunian region, where this accretionExpand
