On the Amplitudes of Superhumps

By J. Smak

Abstract

Amplitudes of bolometric light curves produced by 2D and 3D SPH simulations are used to determine the corresponding visual amplitudes. They turn out to be ∼ 10 times lower than typical amplitudes of superhumps. This means a major failure of the tidal model of superhumps
