Super Eddington Atmospheres and their Winds

Abstract

We present a model for the steady state winds of super-Eddington systems. These radiatively driven winds are expected to be optically thick and clumpy as they arise from a porous atmosphere. The model is then used to derive the mass loss of bright classical novae. The long duration super-Eddington outflows that are clearly observed in at least two cases… (More)
