  • Classical and recurrent nova models 

    José Pont, Jordi; Casanova Bustamante, Jordi; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Hernanz Carbó, Margarita; Shore, Steven N.; Calder, A. (2011)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Remarkable progress in the understanding of nova outbursts has been achieved through combined efforts in photometry, spectroscopy and numerical simulations. According to the thermonuclear runaway model, novae are powered ...
  • Multi-dimensional simulations of mixing in classical novae 

    Casanova Bustamante, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-11-03)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Classical nova explosions are stellar explosions that take place in close binary systems with an energy release only exceeded by gamma-ray bursts and supernova explosions. Matter from the white dwarf flows through the inner ...
  • Recent advances in the modelling of classical novae and type I X-ray bursts 

    José Pont, Jordi; Casanova Bustamante, Jordi; Parikh, Anuj Ramesh; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique (2012)
    Open Access
    Classical nova outbursts and type I X-ray bursts are thermonuclear stellar explosions driven by charged-particle reactions. Extensive numerical simulations of nova explosions have shown that the accreted envelopes attain ...
