Cataclysmic Variables: From Radio to Gamma-Rays

Some representative results of observations of cataclysmic variables, made over the whole width of the electromagnetic spectrum, are given. At the longest wavelengths the ejecta from novae have been found to be more massive than previously thought. X-ray to UV flux ratios are well-correlated with rates of mass transfer, but correlations with orbital period are shown to be the result of observational selection. I give some representative results of observations of cataclysmic variable stars (CVs) at different energies.
