There are now four dwarf novae known with white dwarf primaries that show large amplitude non-radial oscillations of the kind seen in ZZ Cet stars. We compare the properties of these stars and point out that by the end of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey more than 30 should be known.

  • 2021
The discovery in 1998 of a pulsating white dwarf in the cataclysmic variable GW Lib opened up a new avenue of exploration in the asteroseismology of white dwarfs. Since dwarf novae undergo outbursts

Some cataclysmic variables show short-period ($\sim$200 to $\sim$2000 s) light variations, which are attributable to nonradial pulsations of the accreting primary white dwarf. We regard these
The spin periods and magnetic moments of white dwarfs in magnetic cataclysmic variables
TLDR
A model of magnetic accretion is used to investigate the rotational equilibria of magnetic cataclysmic variables (mCVs) and it is demonstrated that there is a range of parameter space in the Pspin=Porb versus � 1 plane at which rotational equilibrium occurs.
High-speed photometry of faint cataclysmic variables – IX. Targets from multiple transient surveys
We present high-speed photometric observations of 25 cataclysmic variables detected by the All Sky Automated Search for Super-Novae, the Mobile Astronomical System of the TElescope-Robot, and the
Chandra Observations of V407 Vul: Confirmation of the Spin-Up
V407 Vul (RX J1914.4+2456) is a candidate double-degenerate binary with a putative 1.756 mHz (9.5 minute) orbital frequency. In a previous timing study using archival ROSAT and ASCA data, we reported
Cataclysmic Variables From the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Novel magnetic resonance imaging agents comprise complexes of paramagnetic ions with hydrazide derivatives of polyaminocarboxylic acid chelating agents. These novel imaging agents are characterized

A 2.09-h Photometric Periodicity in GW Librae
We have found a 2.09 h modulation in brightness of the dwarf nova GW Lib. This bears no special relationship to the 1.28 h spectroscopic period that is believed to be the orbital period. It was
