Cataclysmic Variables: A Review

F. Giovannelli

Abstract

In this paper I review cataclysmic variables (CVs) discussing several
hot points about the renewing interest of today astrophysics about these
sources. Because of limited length of the paper and my knowledge, this
review does not pretend to be complete. However, I would like to
demonstrate that the improvement on knowledge of the physics of our
Universe is strictly related also with the multifrequency behaviour of
CVs, which apparently in the recent past lost to have a leading position
in modern astrophysics.
