Rapid Oscillations in Cataclysmic Variables, and a Comparison with X-Ray Binaries

AbstractWe compare some of the properties of rapid oscillations in cataclysmic variables and X-Ray binaries. In addition to the earlier recognition that both types possess the same correlation between high and low frequency quasi-periodic oscillations, we have now found that the dwarf nova VW Hyi in its late stages of outburst shows the 1:2:3 oscillations harmonics that are seen in some neutron star and black hole X-Ray binaries. We point out that the behaviour of the dwarf nova WZ Sge has some similarities to those of accreting millisecond pulsars.
