Figure 2

Mass of bosonic component accumulated within the accretion disk, in units of m (\(\equiv m_{\text{wd}}\))—the WD mass. Three periastron passages (marked by 1, 2, and 3), equally separated in time, can be clearly identified. Each successive passage is accompanied by increased amount of stripped mass. At the third passage the binary ends its life, see Fig. 3. Note that the distance 1 between ticks means \(10^4\) in units of \(m_B\,a_B^2/\hbar \).
