We redetermine the relationship between absolute magnitude and orbital period for dwarf novae, based on 46 stars with good distance estimates. This improves upon Warner's previous relation, building upon today's improved estimates of distance and binary inclination, and greater wavelength coverage. Together with other distance and dynamical constraints, this calibration is then applied to a set of ∼300 known or likely dwarf novae of short orbital period, to study the dependence of quiescent M… Expand
