AN EXPLORATION OF THE PARADIGM FOR THE 2¨3 HOUR PERIOD GAP IN CATACLYSMIC VARIABLES
We critically examine the basic paradigm for the origin of the 2¨3 hr period gap in cataclysmic variables (CVs), i.e., binary systems in which a white dwarf accretes from a relatively unevolved,Expand

The evolutionary status of 4U 1820-30
The evolution of an ultracompact binary wherein mass transfer is driven by the emission of gravitational radiation is calculated, emphasizing the systematic study of how the rate of change in orbitalExpand

LMXB AND IMXB EVOLUTION: I. THE BINARY RADIO PULSAR PSR J1614–2230
We have computed an extensive grid of binary evolution tracks to represent low- and intermediate-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs and IMXBs). The grid includes 42,000 models which cover 60 initial donorExpand

The Aspen-Amsterdam void finder comparison project
Despite a history that dates back at least a quarter of a century studies of voids in the large–scale structure of the Universe are bedevilled by a major problem: there exist a large number of quiteExpand

Theoretical Considerations on the Properties of Accreting Millisecond Pulsars
We examine a number of evolutionary scenarios for the recently discovered class of accretion-powered millisecond X-ray pulsars in ultracompact binaries, including XTE J0929-314 and XTE J1751-305.Expand

The Size, Shape and Orientation of Cosmological Voids in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We present a detailed description of our void finding algorithm which is an extension of the prescription by Hoyle and Vogeley. We include a discussion of the reproducibility and robustness of theExpand

The evolution of ultrashort period binary systems
A discussion is presented concerning the results of detailed evolutionary calculations in which a very low mass and hydrogen-depleted semiattached binary star containing a collapsed object can reachExpand

Evolution of Cataclysmic Variables and Related Binaries Containing a White-Dwarf
We present a binary evolution study of cataclysmic variables (CVs) and related systems with white dwarf accretors, including for example, AM CVn systems, classical novae, supersoft X-ray sources, andExpand

DISCOVERY OF TWO NEW THERMALLY BLOATED LOW-MASS WHITE DWARFS AMONG THE KEPLER BINARIES
We report the discovery of two new low-mass, thermally bloated, hot white dwarfs among the Kepler sample of eclipsing binaries. These are KIC 9164561 and KIC 10727668 with orbital periods of 1.2670Expand

WD 1202-024: the shortest-period pre-cataclysmic variable
Among the 28,000 targeted stars in K2 Field 10 is the white dwarf WD 1202-024 (EPIC 201283111), first noted in the SDSS survey (SDSS 120515.80-024222.7). We have found that this hot white dwarf (TeffExpand
