We compare some of the properties of rapid oscillations in cataclysmic variables and X‐Ray binaries. In addition to the earlier recognition that both types possess the same correlation between high and low frequency quasi‐periodic oscillations, we have now found that the dwarf nova VW Hyi in its late stages of outburst shows the 1:2:3 oscillation harmonics that are seen in some neutron star and black holes X‐Ray binaries. We point out that the behaviour of the dwarf nova WZ Sge has some…

Cataclysmic Variables: Eight Breakthroughs in Eight Years
The last few years have seen tremendous progress in our understanding of cataclysmic variable stars. As a result, we are finally developing a much clearer picture of their evolution as binary
