We present a review of the modern concept of physical processes which go on in magnetic CVs with the mass transfer between the components. Using results of 3D MHD simulations, we investigated variations of the main characteristics of accretion disks depending on the value of the magnetic induction on the surface of the accreting star. In the frame of a self-consistent description of the MHD flow structure in close binaries, we formulate conditions of the disk formation and find a criterion that separates two types of flows corresponding to intermediate polars (intermediate magnetic field) and polars (strong field).
The influence of asynchronous rotation of the accretor on the flow structure in magnetic close binaries is also discussed. Simulations show that the accretion instability arising in binaries with rapid rotation of accretor (“propeller” regime) can explain the mechanism of quasi-periodic dwarf nova outbursts observed in DQ Her systems.
