On the spin periods of the magnetic cataclysmic variables.
In: The physics of cataclysmic variables and related objects: proceedings of a conference on the occasion of Klaus Beuermann's impending 65th birthday , 5-10 August 2001, Gottingen, Germany, Astronomical Society of the Pacific, pp. 171–172.
Numerical simulations of the accretion flow in magnetic cataclysmic variables (mCVs) reveal a continuum of spin equilibria which span the range observed in intermediate polars (IPs). We also locate the condition for polar synchronisation in the Pspin / Porb vs. magnetic moment plane.
