An introduction is given to the fields of low mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs), soft X-ray transients (SXTs) and related classes of objects. Aspects such as evolution, variability and populations are reviewed.
The methods of time series analysis are listed and the new method of Bayesian spectrum analysis and parameter estimation is outlined. In particular the methods required to analyze multi-periodic variability in LMXB light curves are desc ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]

An introduction is given to cataclysmic variables (CVs), low mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) and globular clusters. The radio properties of LMXBs are reviewed. I present optical spectroscopy and photometry of the globular cluster CV candidates, V4 in M30, V101 in M5, the CV candidates in M71 and of the LMXB 4U06144-09. VLA observations of the globular cluster X-ray sources in NGC7078, NGC6712, NGC6624 and NGC1851 and a "snapshot" of the galactic L ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]
