Abstract

Seventeen examples are given of Cataclysmic Variable (CV) stars possessing both Dwarf Nova Oscillations (DNOs) and Quasi-Periodic Oscillations (QPOs). These form an extension of the X-Ray Two-QPO correlation to frequencies three orders of magnitude lower. We draw attention to the existence of a second type of DNO in CVs, which is probably caused by magnetically channelled accretion onto the white dwarf.
