Accretion processes in AM Herculis systems

Ferrario, L.


We begin by presenting a theoretical model for the radial velocity and velocity dispersion of the broad emission line component in AM Herculis systems assuming that it originates mainly in the gas which is diverted out of the orbital plane and funneled on to the white dwarf surface along magnetic field lines. The model is used to locate the line forming region in three AM Her variables using as constraints the radial velocity and velocity dispersion data. This work shows that the material...[Show more]
