    A central hypothesis in the theory of cataclysmic variable (CV) evolution is the need to explain the observed lack of accreting systems in the similar or equal to 2-3 h orbital period range, known as the period gap. The ...

    Context. Detached white dwarf + main sequence (WD+MS) post-common-envelope binaries (PCEBs) are perhaps the most suitable objects for testing predictions of close-compact binary-star evolution theories, in particular, ...
  • Monte Carlo simulations of post-common-envelope white dwarf plus main sequence binaries: comparison with the SDSS DR7 observed sample

    The merger of close double white dwarfs (CDWDs) is one of the favourite evolutionary channels for producing Type Ia supernovae (SN Ia). Unfortunately, current theories of the evolution and formation of CDWDs are still ...
