The Golden Age of Cataclysmic Variables and Related Objects (some critical comments)
February 25, 2021
In the last few years we assisted to a substantial improvement on the number of cataclysmic variables (CVs) discovered, but only few exciting results have been obtained such as the discovery of a white dwarf pulsar in AR Sco. In this paper I will comment, from a personal point of view, some news about the route to be followed in the investigations on CVs and Related Objects.
The paper will be developed as follows:
- The use of wisdom in Physics
- Some comments on Cataclysmic Variables
- Classical and Recurrent Novae
- Progenitors of Type--Ia Supernovae
- Nuclear Reactions in Stars
- Some Open Questions

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and

which is more detailed and complete.
