J/PAZh/34/270       Photometric parameters of Galactic novae     (Burlak+, 2008)

Determining the photometric parameters of Galactic novae from visual light curves. Burlak M.A., Henden A.A. <Pis'ma Astron. Zh. 34, 270 (2008)> =2008PAZh...34..270B =2008AstL..34...241B
ADC_Keywords: Novae Abstract: Based on visual estimates by AAVSO observers, we have constructed light curves for 80 Galactic novae flared up in 1986-2006 and determined the photometric parameters mvis(max), t2, and t3 for 64 novae. Using the empirical relation MV(max)=-10.66(0.33)+2.31(0.26)*log(t2) (Cohen, 1985ApJ...292...90C), we have obtained the absolute magnitudes at maximum and apparent distance moduli of the novae.
