  • disc accretion in X-ray binaries
  • wind-fed accretion and X-ray pulsars
  • boundary layers around neutron stars and white dwarfs
  • numerical simulations of accretion discs
  • super-Eddington accretion and ultra-luminous X-ray sources
  • long and short term variability and comparison to extra-galactic black holes
