I collect virtually all photometry of the 10 known galactic recurrent novae (RNe) and their 37 known eruptions. This consists of my modern measures of nearly all archival plates (providing the only data for half of 37 known eruptions), my own 10,000 CCD magnitudes from 1987 to present (providing virtually all of the magnitudes in quiescence for seven RNe), over 140,000 visual magnitude estimates recorded by amateur astronomers (who discovered half the known eruptions), and the small scattering… Expand
ON THE PROGENITORS OF LOCAL GROUP NOVAE. I. THE M31 CATALOG
We report the results of a survey of M31 novae in quiescence. This is the first catalog of extragalactic systems in quiescence to be published, and contains data for 38 spectroscopically confirmedExpand
Recurrent and symbiotic novae in data from the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment
We analyse long-term optical photometry for two Galactic recurrent novae (V745 Sco and V3890 Sgr) and one Large Magellanic Cloud object (Nova LMC 1990b) observed over several years by the OpticalExpand
CATALOG OF 93 NOVA LIGHT CURVES: CLASSIFICATION AND PROPERTIES
We present a catalog of 93 very-well-observed nova light curves. The light curves were constructed from 229,796 individual measured magnitudes, with the median coverage extending to 8.0 mag belowExpand
OGLE Atlas of Classical Novae I. Galactic Bulge Objects
Eruptions of classical novae are possible sources of lithium formation and gamma-ray emission. Nova remnants can also become Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia). The contribution of novae to these phenomenaExpand
On the progenitors of local group novae. II. the red giant nova rate of M31
In our preceding paper, Liverpool Telescope data of M31 novae in eruption were used to facilitate a search for their progenitor systems within archival Hubble Space Telescope (HST) data, with the aimExpand
Accurate pre- and post-eruption orbital periods for the dwarf/classical nova V1017 Sgr
V1017 Sgr is a classical nova (in 1919) that displayed an earlier dwarf nova eruption (in 1901), and two more dwarf nova events (in 1973 and 1991). Previous work on this bright system in quiescenceExpand
IDENTIFYING AND QUANTIFYING RECURRENT NOVAE MASQUERADING AS CLASSICAL NOVAE
Recurrent novae (RNe) are cataclysmic variables with two or more nova eruptions within a century. Classical novae (CNe) are similar systems with only one such eruption. Many of the so-called CNe areExpand
A remarkable recurrent nova in M31: Discovery and optical/UV observations of the predicted 2014 eruption
The Andromeda Galaxy recurrent nova M31N 2008-12a had been caught in eruption eight times. The inter-eruption period of M31N 2008-12a is similar to 1 yr, making it the most rapidly recurring systemExpand
A Population of Heavily Reddened, Optically Missed Novae from Palomar Gattini-IR: Constraints on the Galactic Nova Rate
The nova rate in the Milky Way remains largely uncertain, despite its vital importance in constraining models of Galactic chemical evolution as well as understanding progenitor channels for Type IaExpand
Eclipses during the 2010 Eruption of the Recurrent Nova U Scorpii
The eruption of the recurrent nova U Scorpii on 2010 January 28 is now the all-time best observed nova event. We report 36,776 magnitudes throughout its 67 day eruption, for an average of one measureExpand

ORBITAL PERIODS FOR THREE RECURRENT NOVAE
I report on the discovery of the orbital periods of three recurrent novae in our Galaxy. V745 Sco has an orbital period of 510 ± 20 days with ellipsoidal modulations, based on SMARTS photometry fromExpand
IRAS observations of binaries with compact objects
The infrared emission data, obtained on 260 binary systems by the all-sky IRAS survey in wavelengths between 12 and 100 microns, are reported. Of all the 260 sources, which contained compact objectsExpand
The Behavior of Novae Light Curves Before Eruption
In 1975, E. R. Robinson conducted the hallmark study of the behavior of classical nova light curves before eruption, and this work has now become part of the standard knowledge of novae. He madeExpand

Photometric and Spectroscopic Observations of Nova T Pyxidis
T Pyxidis is a member of a small group of objects known as recurrent novae. It underwent outbursts in 1890, 1902, 1920, 1944, and most recently, in late 1966. References to the earlier outbursts haveExpand
BVRJK observations of Northern Hemisphere old novae
BVR photometry has been accomplished for 65 objects in the Duerbeck atlas along with J photometry of 52 and K of 30 objects. The (B - V), (V - R), and (V - J) colors are compiled with those availableExpand
Spectroscopic and photometric observations of the recurrent nova IM Normae
The outburst of the recurrent nova IM Nor was followed visually and spectroscopically. In the beginning of the outburst, the nova belonged to Williams’ Fe II class, but one month later, the spectrumExpand
A Test of Nova Trigger Theory
The theory of nova eruptions is robust, and its predictions for the expanding shell are well confirmed by observations. However, the aspect of the triggering of novae has not been experimentallyExpand
Searching for Past Outbursts of Recurrent Novae
ABSTRACT In the summer of 2004, a search for past outbursts of three known recurrent novae (RNe; V1017 Sgr, V3890 Sgr, and CI Aql) was conducted using digitized plates at the Maria MitchellExpand
