The most puzzling aspect of the radio emission from LSI+61303 is that the large periodic radio outburst, with period equal to the orbital one, occurs very displaced from periastron passage, nearly at apoastron. In 1992, Taylor, one of the discoverers of this source, together with his collaborators proposed a model of a compact object in an eccentric orbit accreting from the equatorial wind of the Be star primary. The application of this model by Marti & Paredes (1995) predicts one ejection at…

Radio and high energy characteristics of the gamma-ray binary LSI +61°303
LS I +61◦303 is a high mass X-ray binary, where a compact object travels on an eccentric orbit around a Be star with an orbital period of 26.5 d. The most peculiar radio characteristics of LS I
Steady jets and transient jets: observational characteristics and models
Two types of radio emission are observed from X-ray binaries with jets. They have completely different characteristics and are associated with different kinds of ejections. One kind of emission has a
