Determining the Masses and Evolution of CVs through Ellipsoidal Variations

Extract

We use simultaneous multi-wavelength BVRI-JHK photometric observations of cataclysmic variables (CVs) to determine the inclination angles of the systems, together with phase-resolved spectroscopy to calculate the K2 and vsini. We then calculate the masses of the system components. We are using these data to construct mass-radius diagrams of the secondaries in an effort to resolve some of the debate over their evolutionary history.
