The peculiar light curve of the Symbiotic Star AX Per of the last 125 years
We analyze the last 125 years optical light curve of the symbiotic star AX Per through some remarkable correlations that we discovered in its power spectrum. The data were assembled from the literature and from the AAVSO database. We suggest, following others, that the major outbursts of the system result from events of intense mass loss from the giant star.
