The Formation of the Double Gaussian Line Profiles of the Symbiotic Star AG Peg
We analyze high dispersion emission lines of the symbiotic nova AG Peg, observed in 1998, 2001, and 2002. The H$\alpha$ and H$\beta$ lines show three components, two narrow and one underlying broadExpand
The path to Z And-type outbursts: The case of V426 Sagittae (HBHA 1704-05)
The star V426 Sge (HBHA~1704-05), originally classified as an emission-line object and a semi-regular variable, brightened at the beginning of August 2018, showing signatures of a symbiotic starExpand
Āpa and Apāṃvatsa - enigmatic stars catalogued in Sūryasiddhānta
Indian siddhāntic texts are well known for their indigenous approach to solutions of problems in astronomy which also speaks of their expertise in mathematics. The text Sūryasiddhānta is consideredExpand
An illumination effect and an eccentric orbit for the symbiotic binary PU Vul revealed by 32 yr of optical spectroscopy
We analyze $\sim$32 years of optical spectra and photometry for the symbiotic binary PU Vul. Light curves for the He I $\lambda$4471, He II $\lambda$4686 and H$\beta$ $\lambda$4861 emission linesExpand
Dust around the Cool Component of D-Type Symbiotic Binaries
D type symbiotic binaries are an excellent astrophysical laboratory for investigation of the dust properties and dust formation under the influence of theMira stellar wind and nova activity and ofExpand
Chemical abundance analysis of 13 southern symbiotic giants from high-resolution spectra at ̃1.56 μm
Symbiotic stars (SySt) are binaries composed of a star in the later stages of evolution and a stellar remnant. The enhanced mass-loss from the giant drives interacting mass exchange and makes theseExpand
New outburst of the symbiotic nova AG Peg after 165 years
AG Peg is known as the slowest symbiotic nova, which experienced its nova-like outburst around 1850. After 165 years, during June of 2015, it erupted again showing characteristics of the Z And-typeExpand
Chemical abundance analysis of symbiotic giants – III. Metallicity and CNO abundance patterns in 24 southern systems
The elemental abundances of symbiotic giants are essential to address the role of chemical composition in the evolution of symbiotic binaries, to map their parent population, and to trace their massExpand
Infrared Spectroscopy of Symbiotic Stars. XI. Orbits for Southern S-type Systems: Hen 3-461, SY Mus, Hen 3-828, AND AR Pav
Employing new infrared radial velocities, we have computed spectroscopic orbits of the cool giants in four southern S-type symbiotic systems. The orbits for two of the systems, Hen3-461 andExpand
Swift observations of the 2015 outburst of AG Peg - from slow nova to classical symbiotic outburst
Symbiotic stars often contain white dwarfs with quasi-steady shell burning on their surfaces. However, in most symbiotics, the origin of this burning is unclear. In symbiotic slow novae, however, itExpand
