Nucleosynthesis in Classical Novae and Its Contribution to the Interstellar Medium
Classical novae, explosions that result from thermonuclear runaways (TNRs) on the surfaces of white dwarfs (WDs) accreting hydrogen-rich matter in close binary systems, are sporadically injectingExpand
Optical Outburst of the Halo Black Hole X-ray Transient XTE J1118+480
Optical spectra were obtained of the optical counterpart of the high-latitude (b 62°) soft X-ray transient XTE J1118+480 near its quiescent state (R 18.3) with the new 6.5 m Multiple Mirror TelescopeExpand
An energetic stellar outburst accompanied by circumstellar light echoes
TLDR
High-resolution imaging and polarimetry of light echoes indicate that V838 Mon represents a hitherto unknown type of stellar outburst, for which the authors have no completely satisfactory physical explanation. Expand
Of Galactic Novae
The classical nova outburst is the second most violent explosion that occurs in a galaxy and its violence is exceeded only by a supernova explosion. However, novae are relatively nearby and a novaExpand
V838 MONOCEROTIS: A GEOMETRIC DISTANCE FROM HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE POLARIMETRIC IMAGING OF ITS LIGHT ECHO*
Following the outburst of the unusual variable star V838 Monocerotis in 2002, a spectacular light echo appeared. A light echo provides the possibility of direct geometric distance determination,Expand
IRC +10420 - A cool hypergiant near the top of the H-R diagram
New data are reported for the OH/IR star IRC+10420, including optical/infrared imaging, spectroscopy, polarimetry, and photometry. We conclude the following: 1. The optical spectrum is that of a veryExpand
Detection of superhumps in XTE J1118+480 approaching quiescence
We present the results of our monitoring of the halo black hole soft X-ray transient (SXT) XTE J1118+480 during its decline to quiescence. The system has decayed 0.5 mag from 2000 December to itsExpand
Evolutionary sequences for Nova V1974 Cygni using new nuclear reaction rates and opacities
Accepted 1997 November 12. Received 1997 September 26; in original form 1997 January 24 ABSTRA C T The outburst of Nova V1974 Cyg 1992 is arguably the best observed of this century, with realisticExpand
Swift Observations of the 2006 Outburst of the Recurrent Nova RS Ophiuchi. I. Early X-Ray Emission from the Shocked Ejecta and Red Giant Wind
RS Ophiuchi began its latest outburst on 2006 February 12. Previous outbursts have indicated that high-velocity ejecta interact with a preexisting red giant wind, setting up shock systems analogousExpand
