Abstract: We present preliminary results from a Doppler tomographic study of the accretion disk in the SU UMa dwarf nova V436 Cen. We have constructed tomograms in the rotating frames of many different individual accretion disk annulae: Kepler tomography. This technique -- the equivalent of a 3-dimensional periodogram (Vx, Vy, Ptomo) -- can be used to look for traces of structures -- like waves, magnetic prominences and loops within the disk.
