Abstract. The Tübingen NLTE Model-Atmosphere Package (TMAP) calculates fully metal-line blanketed white dwarf model atmospheres and spectral energy distributions (SEDs) at a high level of sophistication. Such SEDs are easily accessible via the German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory (GAVO) service TheoSSA. We discuss applications of TMAP models to (pre) white dwarfs during the hottest stages of their stellar evolution, e.g. in the parameter range of novae and super soft sources.
Key words: astronomical data bases: miscellaneous, stars: abundances, stars: AGB and post-AGB, stars: atmospheres, stars: binaries (including multiple): close, stars: early-type, stars: individual (V 4743 Sgr, V 1974 Cyg), stars: novae, cataclysmic variables, stars: winds, outflows, X-rays: bursts
