Doppler Tomography of the Dwarf Nova IY UMa During Quiescence

Rolfe, D.J.; Abbott, T.M.C. and Haswell, C.A. (2001). Doppler Tomography of the Dwarf Nova IY UMa During Quiescence. In: Boffin, H.M.J.; Steeghs, D. and Cuypers, J. eds. Astrotomography, Indirect Imaging Methods in Observational Astronomy, Volume 573. Springer, pp. 39–44.



Quiescent Doppler tomography of the newly discovered deeply-eclipsing SU UMa system IY UMa reveals properties of the region where the accretion stream from the donor impacts the edge of the disc. A very strong bright spot is produced and the Keplerian disc emission in the impact region is disrupted or obscured. The differing properties of Hα, Hβ and He I emission will allow physical parameters of the converging flow region to be studied.
