Preliminary results of improved model fits to the extreme and far UV observations of cataclysmic variables

  • 20 Accesses

Abstract

We present the first results of a study which will attempt to analyze the combined Voyager and IUE observations of cataclysmic variables using steady-state accretion disk models. Initially we use flux ratio diagrams to determine if a combination of models will suffice or if new ingredients are necessary.
