Context. The binary star system RS Ophiuchi is a recurrent nova, with outbursts occurring about every 22 years. It consists of a red giant star (RG) and a wind accreting white dwarf close to the Chandrasekhar limit. This system is considered a prime candidate for evolving into an SNIa. For its most recent outbursts in 1985 and 2006, exquisite multiwavelength observational data are available. Aims. Deeper physical insight is needed regarding the inter-outburst accretion phase and the dynamical… Expand

Simulations of the symbiotic recurrent nova V407 Cyg. I. Accretion and shock evolutions
The shock interaction and evolution of nova ejecta with a wind from a red giant star in a symbiotic binary system are investigated via three-dimensional hydrodynamics simulations. We specificallyExpand
Recurrent Novae: Progenitors of SN Ia?
We present 3D hydrodynamical simulations of the separated binary RS Ophiuchi (RS Oph), a recurrent nova and potential progenitor of a SN Ia. RS Oph is composed of a red giant (RG) and a white dwarfExpand
The Asymmetric Outflow of RS Ophiuchi
Abstract RS Ophiuchi (RS Oph) is a symbiotic binary consisting of a hot white dwarf accreting from the slow, dense stellar wind of a cool, red giant companion. The system belongs to, and is one ofExpand
The recurrent nova RS Oph: A possible scenario for type Ia supernovae
Abstract The recurrent nova RS Oph experienced an outburst in 2006, 21 years after its previous explosion in 1985, as expected. It was observed at almost all wavelengths, and important informationExpand
Modelling the circumstellar medium in RS Ophiuchi and its link to Type Ia supernovae
Recent interpretations of narrow, variable absorption lines detected in some Type Ia supernovae suggest that their progenitors are surrounded by dense, circumstellar material. Similar variationsExpand
SWIFT OBSERVATIONS OF THE 2006 OUTBURST OF THE RECURRENT NOVA RS OPHIUCHI. III. X-RAY SPECTRAL MODELING
Following the Swift X-ray observations of the 2006 outburst of the recurrent nova RS Ophiuchi, we developed hydrodynamical models of mass ejection from which the forward shock velocities were used toExpand
The spectroscopic evolution of the symbiotic-like recurrent nova V407 Cygni during its 2010 outburst II. The circumstellar environment and the aftermath
Context. The nova outburst of V407 Cyg in 2010 Mar. 10 was the first observed for this star but its close resemblance to the well known symbiotic-like recurrent nova RS Oph suggests that it is also aExpand
CIRCUMSTELLAR SHELL FORMATION IN SYMBIOTIC RECURRENT NOVAE
We present models of spherically symmetric recurrent nova shells interacting with circumstellar material (CSM) in a symbiotic system composed of a red giant (RG) expelling a wind and a white dwarfExpand
Modelling the 2010 blast wave of the symbiotic-like nova V407 Cygni
The symbiotic-like binary Mira and nova V407 Cyg was observed in outburst in 2010 March and monitored in several wavelength bands. The outburst had, to some extent, characteristics similar to thoseExpand
X-RAY AND ULTRAVIOLET EMISSION FROM THE RECURRENT NOVA RS OPHIUCHI IN QUIESCENCE: SIGNATURES OF ACCRETION AND SHOCKED GAS
RS Ophiuchi is a recurrent nova system that experiences outbursts every ~20 years, implying accretion at a high rate onto a massive white dwarf. However, previous X-ray observations of the system inExpand

An asymmetric shock wave in the 2006 outburst of the recurrent nova RS Ophiuchi
TLDR
The detection of spatially resolved structure in RS Ophiuchi from two weeks after its 12 February 2006 outburst is reported, producing a remnant similar to that of a type II supernova but evolving over months rather than millennia. Expand
A Near-Infrared Shock Wave in the 2006 Outburst of Recurrent Nova RS Ophiuchi
Near-infrared spectra are presented for the recent 2006 outburst of the recurrent nova RS Ophiuchi.We report the rare detection of an infrared shock wave as the nova ejecta plows into the preexistingExpand

One of the candidates for Type Ia supernova progenitors, the recurrent nova RS Ophiuchi, underwent its sixth recorded outburst in 2006 February, and for the first time a complete light curve ofExpand
Models for the remnants of recurrent novae – III. Comparison with the X-ray observations of RS Ophiuchi (1985)

Recurrent novae as a progenitor system of type ia supernovae. I. rs ophiuchi subclass -- systems with a red giant companion
Theoretical light curves of four recurrent novae in outburst are modeled to obtain various physical parameters. The four objects studied here are those with a red giant companion, i.e., T CoronaeExpand
An X-ray-emitting blast wave from the recurrent nova RS Ophiuchi
TLDR
The early onset of deceleration indicates that the ejected shell had a low mass, the white dwarf has a high mass, and that RS Ophiuchi is therefore a progenitor of the type of supernova (type Ia) integral to studies of the expansion of the Universe. Expand
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
Resumption of mass accretion in RS Oph
TLDR
Photometric data presented here show evidence of the resumption of optical flickering, indicating reestablishment of accretion by day 241 of the outburst of the recurrent nova RS Oph, which implies average accretion rates are typically higher than seen immediately post-outburst. Expand
