Stellar Transients in the Era of Time-Domain Astrophysics

The goal of LSST and other time-domain surveys is to open a new window on the universe. This new view of the heavens will turn the attention of a large part of the astronomical community to transients and other variable phenomena that are primarily related to stars. I will describe several of my recent breakthroughs in the fields of nova explosions and white-dwarf accretion -- along with their broad implications -- to give a taste of some of the excitement that is to come.
