ABSTRACT The Catalog and Atlas of Cataclysmic Variables (Edition 1: Downes & Shara; Edition 2: Downes, Webbink, & Shara) has been a valuable source of information for the cataclysmic variable community. However, the goal of having a central location for all objects is slowly being lost as each new edition is generated. There can also be a long time delay between new information becoming available on an object and its publication in the catalog. To eliminate these concerns, as well as to make… Expand

Figures from this paper

We present an online catalog containing spectra and supporting information for cataclysmic variables that have been observed with the Far-Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE). For each object inExpand
Discovery of New Eruptive Cataclysmic Variables using the MACHO Database
We report the results of a search in the MACHO light-curve database that aims to find new cataclysmic variables. The targets were selected from variables toward the Magellanic Clouds and GalacticExpand
Cataclysmic Variables in the SUPERBLINK Proper Motion Survey
We have discovered a new high proper motion cataclysmic variable (CV) in the SUPERBLINK proper motion survey, which is sensitive to stars with proper motions greater than 40 mas/yr. This CV wasExpand
Cataclysmic variables from sloan digital sky survey - V. The fifth year (2004)
This paper identifies the cataclysmic variables that appear in spectra obtained in 2004 as part of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Spectra of 41 objects, including seven systems that were previouslyExpand
A cataclysmic key programme for SALT
Introduction The study of cataclysmic variables (CVs), novae and dwarf novae in particular, has deep roots in South Africa. Major contributions to the long-term light curves have been made by amateurExpand
Catalogue of cataclysmic binaries, low-mass X-ray binaries and related objects (Seventh edition)
The catalogue lists coordinates, apparent magnitudes, orbital parameters, and stellar parameters of the compo- nents and other characteristc properties of 472 cataclysmic binaries, 71 low-mass X-rayExpand
CVcat: an interactive database on cataclysmic variables
CVcat is a database that contains published data on cataclysmic variables and related objects. Unlike in the existing online sources, the users are allowed to add data to the catalogue. The conceptExpand
Cataclysmic Variables from The Sloan Digital Sky Survey. I. The First Results
The commissioning year of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) has demonstrated that many cataclysmic variables (CVs) have been missed in previous surveys with brighter limits. We report theExpand
Spectroscopically Identified Cataclysmic Variables from the LAMOST Survey. I. The Sample
A sample of Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) is presented including spectroscopically identified 380 spectra of 245 objects, of which 58 CV candidates are new discoveries. The BaggingTopPush and theExpand
Disentangling cataclysmic variables in Gaia’s HR diagram
Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) are interacting binaries consisting of at least three components that control their colour and magnitude. Using Gaia we here investigate the influence of the physicalExpand


A Catalog and Atlas of Cataclysmic Variables-Second Edition
We present a catalog of all 1020 known cataclysmic variables (CVs). This paper is a major update of the first edition of the catalog (Downes and Shara 1993, PASP, 105, 127), which containedExpand
The General Catalog of Variable Stars contains information necessary for obtaining observaitons of variable stars, and in particular, cataclysmic variables. However, the coordinates presented are notExpand
Catalogue of Cataclysmic Binaries, Low-Mass X-Ray Binaries and Related Objects
This catalogue lists coordinates, apparent magnitudes, orbital parameters, stellar parameters of the components and other characteristic properties of cataclysmic binaries, low-mass X-ray binariesExpand
