Abstract

ABSTRACT High‐speed photometry of KUV 01584−0939 (alias Cet3) shows that it has a period of 620.26 s. Combined with its hydrogen‐deficient spectrum, this implies that it is an AM CVn star. The optical modulation is probably a superhump, in which case the orbital period will be slightly shorter than what we have observed.
