In hot pursuit of the hidden companion of Carinae: An X-ray determination of the wind parameters
We present X-ray spectral ts to a recently obtained Chandra grating spectrum of Carinae, one of the most massive and powerful stars in the Galaxy and which is strongly suspected to be a collidingExpand
3D modelling of the colliding winds in η Carinae – evidence for radiative inhibition
The X-ray emission from the super-massive star η Car is simulated using a three dimensional model of the wind-wind collision. In the model the intrinsic X-ray emission is spatially extended andExpand
SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL: THREE-DIMENSIONAL HYDRODYNAMICAL MODELING OF THE COLLIDING WINDS IN η CARINAE
Three-dimensional adaptive mesh refinement hydrodynamical simulations of the wind-wind collision between the enigmatic supermassive star η Car and its mysterious companion star are presented whichExpand
Radio, X-ray, and γ-ray emission models of the colliding-wind binary WR 140
We use hydrodynamical models of the wind-collision region in the archetype colliding-wind system WR 140 to determine the spatial and spectral distributions of the radio, X-ray, and γ-ray emissionExpand
Feedback from winds and supernovae in massive stellar clusters – I. Hydrodynamics
We use 3D hydrodynamical models to investigate the effects of massive star feedback from winds and supernovae on inhomogeneous molecular material left over from the formation of a massive stellarExpand
X-ray spectral variation of η carinae through the 2003 X-ray minimum
We report the results of an observing campaign on η Car around the 2003 X-ray minimum, mainly using the XMM-Newton observatory. These are the first spatially resolved X-ray monitoring observations ofExpand
RECENT X-RAY VARIABILITY OF η CARINAE: THE QUICK ROAD TO RECOVERY
We report continued monitoring of the superluminous binary system η Car by the Proportional Counter Array on the Rossi X-ray Timing Observatory (RXTE) through the 2009 X-ray minimum. The RXTEExpand
3D models of radiatively driven colliding winds in massive O+O star binaries – I. Hydrodynamics
The dynamics of the wind–wind collision in massive stellar binaries are investigated using 3D hydrodynamical models which incorporate gravity, the driving of the winds, the orbital motion of theExpand
Diffuse matter from star forming regions to active galaxies : a volume Honouring John Dyson
John Dyson - a Biographical Sketch. Preface. Part I: Star Forming Regions. 1. Numerical Simulations of Star Formation S. A. E. G. Falle. 2. Molecular Astrophysics of Star Formation D. A. Williams. 3.Expand
THE INTEGRATED DIFFUSE X-RAY EMISSION OF THE CARINA NEBULA COMPARED TO OTHER MASSIVE STAR-FORMING REGIONS
The Chandra Carina Complex Project (CCCP) has shown that the Carina Nebula displays bright, spatially-complex soft diffuse X-ray emission. Here, we 'sum up' the CCCP diffuse emission work byExpand
