dc.description.abstract The study of cataclysmic variable stars has a long history in South Africa. A brief overview of this history is followed by indications of where the new Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) is likely to make major contributions to this research field. There are about 60 staff and students in the SALT Consortium, who work on interacting binaries containing compact components. Most of these people work on cataclysmic variable stars, with the remainder researching neutron star and black hole binary pairs. This group will use a significant amount of SALT observing time. I look at some of the collective and individual topics that SALT will be able to address.
