We present the results of spectrophotometric observations of the old nova RR Pictoris performed in two spectral ranges, one centered in the Hα line, and other covering Hβ and Hγ spectral lines. From the Hβ radial velocity study, we found a primary radial semiamplitude of K1 = 37(1) km s−1 and a systemic velocity of γ = 1.8(2) km s−1. With these new values, a mass diagram is constructed, constraining the possible mass intervals for the system. The possible orbital inclination range was… 


The emission distribution in RR Pictoris
ABSTRACT We present time–resolved optical spectroscopy of the old nova RRPic. Two emissionlines (Hα and He I) are present in the observed part of the spectrum and both showstrong variability. Hα has
A Recent Spectroscopic Study of V841 Ophiuchi
Extensive time-resolved, spectrophotometric observations of the Hα and He I λ6678 emission-line profiles in the old nova V841 Oph are presented and analyzed. The orbital period of this system was
The Eclipsing Cataclysmic Variable V347 Puppis Revisited
An observational study of the nova-like cataclysmic binary V347 Pup (LB 1800) is presented. An analysis of optical and UV spectroscopy is made with the aim of defining the physical properties of the
The Detection of Abundance Anomalies in the Infrared Spectra of Cataclysmic Variables: Shorter Period Systems
We present K-band spectra for 12 cataclysmic variables (CVs) with orbital periods under 6 hr. We confidently detect the secondary stars in nine of these systems and may have detected them in the
Deep optical imaging of nova remnants: a southern sky sample
We present an optical imaging study of 20 southern sky nova remnants which has resulted in the discovery of four previously unknown nova shells — those of V842 Cen, RR Cha, DY Pup and HS Pup. The
The evolution of cataclysmic and low-mass X-ray binaries.
We present an observational study of the structure and evolution of cataclysmic and low-mass X-ray binaries, concentrating on the 124 systems for which orbital periods are known. The eruptive
Southern spectrophotometric standards. I
We have obtained new observations of both secondary and tertiary spectrophotometric standards with the RC spectrographs and CCD cameras on the 1.5-m and 4-m telescopes at CTIO in the wavelength range
Emission lines from the accretion disks of cataclysmic variables
The heating and radiative cooling of steady-state viscous accretion disks in close binary systems are studied. It is shown that the temperatures of the outer regions of disks do not fall below
A model of accretion disks in close binaries.
The simple periodic orbits of a test particle in the restricted three-body problem are a very good approximation to the streamlines in the accretion disk with a very small pressure and viscosity. The
Radiative transfer in the distorted and irradiated atmospheres of close binary components
We studied the transfer of line radiation in the distorted and expanding atmospheres of close binary components. We assumed that the distortion of the atmosphere is caused by self rotation and tidal
