Determining the Masses of White Dwarfs in Magnetic Cataclysmic Variables from X-Ray Observations
A method to determine the masses of white dwarfs in magnetic cataclysmic variables from X-ray observations is presented. The method is appropriate for both eclipsing and non-eclipsing systems, for it is insensitive to the orbital inclination of the systems.
