Abstract: Results are presented from recent theoretical studies that have examined the properties of nova outbursts on ONeMg white dwarfs. These outbursts are much more violent and occur much more frequently than outbursts on CO white dwarfs. Hydrodynamic simulations of both kinds of outbursts are in excellent agreement with the observations.
