    • Two more candidate AM Canum Venaticorum (AM CVn) Binaries from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey 

      Anderson, Scott; Becker, Andrew; Haggard, Daryl; Prieto, Jose Luis; Knapp, Gillian; Sako, Masao; Halford, Kelly; Jha, Saurabh; Martin, Blake; Holtzman, Jon; Frieman, Joshua; Garnavich, Peter; Hayward, Suzanne; Ivezic, Zeljko; Mukadam, Anjum; Sesar, Branimir; Szkody, Paula; Malanushenko, Viktor; Richmond, Michael; Schneider, Donald; York, Donald (American Astronomical Society - The Astronomical Journal, 2008-06)
      AM CVn systems are a select group of ultracompact binaries with the shortest orbital periods of any known binary subclass; mass-transfer is likely from a low-mass (partially-)degenerate secondary onto a white dwarf ...
    • Ultracompact AM CVn Binaries from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: three candidates plus the first confirmed Eclipsing System 

      Anderson, Scott; Haggard, Daryl; Homer, Lee; Joshi, Nikhil; Margon, Bruce; Silvestri, Nicole; Szkody, Paula; Wolfe, Michael; Agol, Eric; Becker, Andrew; Henden, Arne; Hall, Patrick; Knapp, Gillian; Richmond, Michael; Schneider, Donald; Stinson, Gregory; Barentine, John; Brewington, Howard; Brinkmann, Jonanthan; Harvanek, Michael; Kleinman, Scott; Krzesinski, Jurek; Long, Dan; Neilsen, Eric; Nitta, Atsuko; Snedden, Stephanie (American Astronomical Society - The Astronomical Journal, 2005-11)
      AM CVn systems are a rare (about a dozen previously known) class of cataclysmic variables, arguably encompassing the shortest orbital periods (down to about 10 minutes) of any known binaries. Both binary components are ...
