Abstract

This catalogue lists coordinates, apparent magnitudes, orbital parameters, stellar parameters of the components and other characteristic properties of cataclysmic binaries, low-mass X-ray binaries and related objects with known or suspected orbital periods, together with a comprehensive selection of the relevant recent literature. In addition, the catalogue contains a list of references to published finding charts for a subset of the objects, and a cross-reference list of alias object designations.

This is a no-frills catalogue website, focusing on content and simplicity for both user and data provider.

We publish updated data regularly about every six months; updates will be announced on the "What's new?" page. There will be no detailed differential list specifying the changes. Instead, we archive the main data tables (for CVs, LMXBs, related objects) before each update. Archived tables will be accessible for at least five years.

For the current edition (7.14), literature published before 30 June 2010 has, as far as possible, been taken into account. This edition has entries for 849 CVs, 95 LMXBs, and 266 related objects.
