Colliding Stellar Winds in Close Binary Systems

  • Steven N. Shore (a1) and Michael J. Corcoran (a2)

Abstract

We describe some of the observational phenomena associated with colliding stellar winds, focussing especially on close WR+O binaries. In particular, we report some new ultraviolet observations of CQ Cep and V444 Cyg. We also discuss some of the general theory of such wind collisions.
