Definitions for "Nova"
A star which suddenly increases in brightness thousands of times, then fades back to near its original intensity. It may appear as a "new" star if its original brightness was too low for routine observation. A star which suddenly increases in brightness to many millions of times its original intensity is a supernova, and the postulated mechanisms for the increases of brightness of novae and supernovae are different.
An extreme example of the cataclysmic variable phenomenon in which a star's brightness suddenly increases by a factor of a million and then fades over a period of weeks. Novae occur in binary systems of one normal and one white dwarf star, where the normal star transfers matter to the dwarf via an accretion disk. The accreted matter accumulates until such time that it spontaneously ignites in a thermonuclear outburst on the white dwarf's surface.
An explosive increase in stellar brightness by a factor of one hundred thousand to one million. Most novas occur in closely bound binary star systems, with one member being a white dwarf. The white dwarf pulls material (mostly hydrogen) that lies outside the companion star's Roche lobe. As hydrogen falls onto the white dwarf, the surface temperature and pressure increase until the hydrogen shell suddenly explodes in runaway thermonuclear reaction. Most of the material falls back onto the white dwarf. This is a recurring process that occurs as long as a steady stream of hydrogen flows to the white dwarf.
