Aims: We address the task of modeling soft X-ray and optical light curves of X-ray novae in the high/soft state.
Methods: The analytic model of viscous evolution of an externally truncated accretion α-disk is used. Relativistic effects near a Kerr black hole and self-irradiation of an accretion disk are taken into account.
Results: The model is applied to the outbursts of X-ray nova Monocerotis 1975 (
