Abstract: The eclipsing disc accreting CV RW Tri is one of the brightest known novalike variables, but the masses of the component stars are still poorly constrained. Results from a study of RW Tri in the near infrared and infrared constrain the secondary star velocity to 200 km/s (accurate to 10%). Combining this with optical and ultraviolet data for the primary star gives a range of mass ratios (M2 / M1) of 0.9--1.5.
