I review X-ray observations of classical and recurrent novae in outburst, some of them recently done with Chandra and XMM-Newton for 12 objects. Signican t X-ray ux is emitted by the nova shell, with a peak luminosity up to Lx=10 35 erg s 1 in the 0.2-10 keV range. In recurrent nova systems, or in novae hosting a red giant, the source of X-rays may be previous circumstellar matter shocked by the nova wind. However, for most classical novae, X-rays originate inside the nebula ejected in the…

SWIFT X-RAY OBSERVATIONS OF CLASSICAL NOVAE. II. THE SUPER SOFT SOURCE SAMPLE
TLDR
Swift observations of 52 Galactic/Magellanic Cloud novae are presented indicating that additional factors beyond the white dwarf mass and binary separation play important roles in the evolution of a nova outburst and two optical phenomena are confirmed that are correlated with strong, soft X-ray emission which can be used to further increase the efficiency ofX-ray campaigns.
X-ray monitoring of optical novae in M 31 from July 2004 to February 2005
Context. Optical novae have recently been identified as the major class of supersoft X-ray sources in M 31 based on ROSAT and early XMM-Newton and Chandra  observations. Aims. This paper reports on a
The multiwavelength properties of a sample of magellanic cloud and galactic supersoft X-ray binaries
Supersoft X-ray sources constitute a class of astronomical objects characterized by extremely high X-ray luminosities (∼1037 erg s−1), and low effective temperatures, typically 20-100 eV. The
RBS 1032: a dwarf-nucleated spheroidal galaxy with an intermediate-mass black hole hosted in a globular cluster
We report here the multiwavelength observations of the bright supersoft X-ray source, RBS 1032. Most likely, its optical counterpart is a non-emission-line dwarf galaxy with a prominent nucleus. Line

Classical nova explosions
A review of the present status of nova modeling is made, with a special emphasis on some specific aspects. What are the main nucleosynthetic products of the explosion and how do they depend on the
