Constant for non-degenerate accretors, variable for accretion onto a WD.


Except during accretion onto a compact object, AML = isotropic re-emission.


v1 = prescription Webbink (1984), v2 = prescription Hurley et al. (2002).


Based on detailed stellar structure models (Izzard 2004; Claeys et al. 2013).


B-H = Prescription based on Bondi & Hoyle (1944).


Wind accretion is taken into account for neutron star and black hole accretors assuming B-H-accretion.
