We present time series UV and optical (1150–8000 A) spectrophotometry of the nova-like (NL) cataclysmic variable V348 Pup through and after eclipse. Outside of eclipse the spectrum is characterized by a blue continuum, strong line emission, and a broad dip from 2000 to 3000 A. The continuum eclipse depth is roughly the same over the entire wavelength range covered, and there are no signatures of the white dwarf eclipse in the light curves. Model steady-state accretion disk spectra provide a… 
The SW Sex enigma
The SWSex stars are a class of cataclysmic variables, originally identified because they shared a number of enigmatic properties - most notably, single-peaked emission lines instead of the
The nature of the accreting companion to Mira?the prototypical pulsating asymptotic giant branch star?has been a matter of debate for more than 25?years. Here, we use a quantitative analysis of the
The period-gap cataclysmic variable CzeV404 Her: A link between SW Sex and SU UMa systems
Context. We present a new study of the eclipsing cataclysmic variable CzeV404 Her (Porb = 0.098 d) that is located in the period gap. Aims. This report determines the origin of the object and the
A Statistical Study of Accretion Disk Model Spectra for Cataclysmic Variables
We have performed a statistical test of the currently used accretion disk models for cataclysmic variables (CVs) using a set of 33 CVs with steady disks (10 old novae and 23 nova-like systems). The
Orbital period analyses for two cataclysmic variables: UZ Fornacis and V348 Puppis inside the period gap
Four new CCD eclipse timings of the white dwarf for polar UZ Fornacis and six updated CCD mid-eclipse times for SW-Sex-type nova-like V348 Puppis are obtained. Detailed O-C analyses are made for both


Hubble Space Telescope Eclipse Observations of the Nova-like Cataclysmic Variable UX Ursae Majoris*
We present and analyze Hubble Space Telescope observations of the eclipsing nova-like cataclysmic variable UX UMa obtained with the Faint Object Spectrograph. Two eclipses each were observed with the
We present the results of high time resolution UV spectroscopy and simultaneous high-speed UBVR photometry of AE Aqr. The UV spectra were obtained with the Faint Object Spectrograph aboard the Hubble
Observations of the bright novalike variable IX Velorum with the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope
The Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope, an experiment flown on the Space Shuttle as part of the Astro-1 mission, was used to obtain a spectrum of the novalike variable IX Vel (= CPD -48 deg 1577) in the
1H 0709-360 - A cataclysmic variable with an orbital period inside the period gap
The discovery is reported of the second cataclysmic variable with a binary period lying well inside the nominal 2-3 hr period gap. The object, 1H 0709-360, is an X-ray source which has been
High-velocity winds in close binaries with accretion disks. II. The view along the plane of the disk.
We present phase-resolved, ultraviolet spectra of the eclipsing cataclysmic binaries RW Trianguli and DQ Herculis. Both stars display N v lambda1240, Si IV lambda1400, C IV lambda1549, and He II
HST spatially-resolved spectra of the accretion disc and gas stream of the nova-like variable UX Ursae Majoris
Time-resolved eclipse spectroscopy of the nova-like variable UX UMa obtained with the HST/FOS on 1994 August and November is analyzed with eclipse mapping techniques to produce spatially resolved
HST eclipse mapping of dwarf nova OY Carinae in quiescence: An 'Fe II curtain' with Mach approx. = 6 velocity dispersion veils the white dwarf
Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations of the eclipsing dwarf nova OY Car in its quiescent state are used to isolate the ultraviolet spectrum (1150-2500 A at 9.2 A Full Width at Half Maximum
Superhumps in V348 Pup
The eclipsing nova-like cataclysmic variable star V348 Pup exhibits a persistent luminosity modulation with a period 6 per cent longer than its 2.44-h orbital period (Porb). This has been
V348 Puppis: a new SW Sex star in the period gap
We present time-resolved optical spectroscopy and photometry of the nova-like cataclysmic variable V348 Puppis. The system displays the same spectroscopic behaviour as SW Sex stars, so we classify
