By definition transients are sudden events, some, like supernovae, are catastrophic, while others might be due to recurrent phenomena. The aim of studying transients is to reveal the physical conditions causing them, in this sense ideal targets for monitoring are transients in binary systems. In these systems the physical process responsible for the transient depends directly or indirectly on the interaction of the two components of the system. Here I report on transients in stellar binary…

Interacting coronae of two T Tauri stars: first observational evidence for solar-like helmet streamers
Context. The young binary system V773 Tau A exhibits a persistent radio flaring activity that gradually increases from a level of a few mJy at apoastron to more than 100 mJy at periastron.
XTE J1752−223 in outburst: a persistent radio jet, dramatic flaring, multiple ejections and linear polarization
The black hole candidate, XTE J1752-223, was discovered in 2009 October when it entered an outburst. We obtained radio data from the Australia Telescope Compact Array for the duration of the ~9 month
Synchrotron emission from the T Tauri binary system V773 Tauri A
The pre-main sequence binary system V773 Tau A shows remarkable flaring activity around periastron passage. Here, we present the observation of such a flare at a wavelengt h of 3 mm (90 GHz)
Periodic radio flaring on the T Tauri star V 773 Tauri
We present the results of a monitoring of the binary system V773 with the Effelsberg 100-m telescope extended over 522 days. A clear periodicity present in the flaring activity is confirmed by a

Scorpius X-1: The Evolution and Nature of the Twin Compact Radio Lobes
The motion and variability of the radio components in the low-mass X-ray binary system Sco X-1 have been monitored with extensive VLBI imaging at 1.7 and 5.0 GHz over 4 yr, including a 56 hr
The 2000 periastron passage of PSR B1259–63
We report here on a sequence of 28 observations of the binary pulsar system PSR B1259−63/SS2883 at four radio frequencies made with the Australia Telescope Compact Array around the time of the 2000
Radio and X-ray observations of jet ejection in Cygnus X-2
The ejection of a relativistic jet has been observed in the luminous Galactic low mass X-ray binary Cygnus X-2. Using high resolution radio observations, a directly resolved ejection event has been
LS I +61 303 is a Be-Pulsar binary, not a Microquasar
LS I +61◦303 is an HMXB discovered as a γ-ray emitter 30 years ago, and well known as a radio, X ray, and most recently a TeV source. Despite the wealth of data, the choice between pulsar and
The large-scale jet-powered radio nebula of Circinus X-1
We present multi-epoch observations of the radio nebula around the neutron star X-ray binary Circinus X-1 made at 1.4 and 2.5 GHz with the Australia Telescope Compact Array between 2000 October and
