Scientific Research

Current research interests:

Close binaries:
  • Accretion onto white dwarfs, spectra
  • Outbursts of dwarf novae and X-ray transient sources
  • Supersoft X-ray sources
Accretion modes:
  • Disk accretion or advection-dominated flow (ADAF)
  • Change of the accretion mode = spectral transitions in X-ray binaries
  • Evaporation of the inner accretion disk, disk truncation
  • Hysteresis in lightcurves of X-ray binaries
  • Re-condensation of gas from the ADF to an inner disk

Research highlight:
