24 Apr 2019 Blinova A. A. Romanova M. M. Ustyugova G. V. Koldoba A. V. Lovelace R. V. E.

We have developed a numerical MHD model of the propeller candidate star AE Aqr using axisymmetric magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) simulations. We suggest that AE Aqr is an intermediate polar-type star, where the magnetic field is relatively weak and an accretion disc may form around the white dwarf... (read more)
