Fig. 3.


Comparison of the mass-transfer rates we measure as a function of η (solid lines) to the BHL mass-accretion-rate formula (dashed lines) for a filling factor of 90% and mass ratios of 2 (upper panel) and 15 (lower panel). The BHL prescription leads to mass-accretion rates much lower than the mass-transfer rates we derive, sometimes by more than an order of magnitude.
