Symbiotic novae occur in double star systems, where mass lost by a red giant is accumulated by wind accretion onto a white dwarf. When a critical mass has been reached, a novalike outburst of long duration sets in, the outburst lasts many dozens of years. We determine the evolution of luminosity and temperature during the outburst. We find slowly increasing temperatures, up to 200 000 K. Peak luminosities are in the range L=10 4.0±0.5 L ○. . Symbiotic novae remain at such a level for at least… Expand
The Symbiotic Stars
Any white dwarf or neutron star that accretes enough material from a red giant companion, such that this interaction can be detected at some wavelength, is currently termed Symbiotic Star (typicalExpand
Symbiotic nova V1016 Cygni: Evolution of the dust envelope and the gaseous nebula
As a result of the next cycle of our long-term monitoring, we present our UBV JHKLM photometry for the symbiotic nova V1016 Cyg in 2008–2014. The star continued to systematically fade and redden inExpand
The dust envelope of the symbiotic nova HM Sge
We have studied the brightness and color variations of the symbiotic nova HM Sge based on longterm UBVRJHKLM photometry of the star and data on its energy distribution in the middle infraredExpand
Analysis of archive UV observations of the symbiotic nova PU Vul during its nebular stage and brightness minimum in 1993–1994
We present an analysis of the poorly studied UV spectra of the symbiotic Nova PU Vul taken in 1991–1996. The continuum spectral energy distribution during that period (the nebular phase) can beExpand
9,6-Year periodicity of symbiotic nova RT Ser (1909) during the outburst decay from 1940 to 1994
The behavior of the symbiotic nova RT Ser from 1940 to 1994 from photographic observations made at the Gissar Observatory (1940–1978) and BVR-band observations at the Crimean Observatory (1983–1994)Expand
The masses and radii of the components of symbiotic stars
The physical parameters of both the components of fifteen symbiotic stars have been estimated statistically. Data obtained are compared with data available in the literature from photometric andExpand
