Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The structure of optically thick mass-losing envelopes of white dwarfs are studied in relation to nova outbursts. A sequence of steady mass-loss solutions is constructed for a nova outburst from the maximum photospheric radius to the disappearance. Much of mass of the envelope will be blown out.
