Of the approximately 400 known Galactic classical novae, only 10 of them, the recurrent novae, have been seen to erupt more than once. At least eight of these recurrents are known to harbor evolved secondary stars, rather than the main-sequence secondaries typical in classical novae. In this paper, we propose a new nova classification system, based solely on the evolutionary state of the secondary and not (like the current schemes) based on the properties of the outbursts. Using archival…

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 data, with the aim of
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 confirmed
Observations of galactic and extragalactic novae
The recent GAIA DR2 measurements of distances to galactic novae have allowed to re-analyse some properties of nova populations in the Milky Way and in external galaxies on new and more solid

All novae recur, but only a handful have been observed in eruption more than once. These systems, the recurrent novae (RNe), are among the most extreme examples of novae. RNe have long been thought
Classical Novae Masquerading as Dwarf Novae? Outburst Properties of Cataclysmic Variables with ASAS-SN
The unprecedented sky coverage and observing cadence of the All-Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASAS-SN) has resulted in the discovery and continued monitoring of a large sample of Galactic
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 system
THE GALACTIC NOVA RATE REVISITED
Despite its fundamental importance, a reliable estimate of the Galactic nova rate has remained elusive. Here, the overall Galactic nova rate is estimated by extrapolating the observed rate for novae
Nova light curves from the Solar Mass Ejection Imager (SMEI) - II. The extended catalog
We present the results from observing nine Galactic novae in eruption with the Solar Mass Ejection Imager (SMEI) between 2004 and 2009. While many of these novae reached peak magnitudes that were
AT 2017fvz: a nova in the dwarf irregular galaxy NGC 6822
A transient in the Local Group dwarf irregular galaxy NGC 6822 (Barnard’s Galaxy) was discovered on 2017 August 2 and is only the second classical nova discovered in that galaxy. We conducted

Galactic distribution and outburst frequency of classical novae
The observed rate and spatial distribution of galactic novae can be explained with the concept of two nova, populations, the disc novae of faster outburst development, and the slower bulge novae.
Investigation of the Progenitors of Nova Explosions
Recurrent novae (RNe) play an important role as one of the suspected progenitor systems of Type Ia supernovae (SNe) which are used as primary distance indicators in cosmology. Thus, it is important
Historical light curve and search for previous outbursts of Nova KT Eridani (2009)
Context. Nova Eridani (2009) caught the eye of the nova community due to its fast decline from maximum, which was initially missed, and its subsequent development in the radio and X-ray wavelengths.
The Formation of Novae Spectra
The early post-outburst spectra of novae can be divided into two classes based on the stronger of two groups of emission lines, either Fe II lines or lines of He and N. Novae with prominent Fe II
Swift X-ray observations of classical novae
TLDR
This work analyzed all the observations of classical novae from the Swift archive up to 2006 June 30 and found 4 nondetections, 3 weak sources, and 5 strong sources, implying ongoing nuclear burning on the white dwarf surface.

We examine a sample of novae with distances that have been mostly determined by nebular parallaxes and determine their spectral classes according to the classification of Williams. We show that novae
