Accretion flows in nonmagnetic white dwarf binaries as observed in X-rays By:Balman, S (Balman, Solen)[ 1 ] Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) are compact binaries with white dwarf (WD) primaries. CVs and other accreting WD binaries (AWBs) are useful laboratories for studying accretion flows, gas dynamics, outflows, transient outbursts, and explosive nuclear burning under different astrophysical plasma conditions. They have been studied over decades and are important for population studies of galactic X-ray sources. Recent space-and ground-based high resolution spectral and timing studies, along with recent ...

Publisher and Date:(Oxford Univ Press, 2020)We present the results of a search for the nature of ultraluminous X-ray source (ULX) X-3 in the nearby galaxy NGC 4258. We use archival data from XMM-Newton, Chandra, NuSTAR, and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations. Total X-ray data were analysed to find that the model parameters of the system are indicative of a stellar-mass black hole, similar to 10 M-circle dot, as the central compact object. Furthermore, analyses of the optical data from HST reveal two optical candidates at 90 per cent ...
