A Massive Pulsar in a Compact Relativistic Binary
Introduction Neutron stars with masses above 1.8 solar masses (M☉), possess extreme gravitational fields, which may give rise to phenomena outside general relativity. These strong-field deviationsExpand
MODULES FOR EXPERIMENTS IN STELLAR ASTROPHYSICS (MESA): BINARIES, PULSATIONS, AND EXPLOSIONS
We substantially update the capabilities of the open-source software instrument Modules for Experiments in Stellar Astrophysics (MESA). MESA can now simultaneously evolve an interacting pair ofExpand
Binary Interaction Dominates the Evolution of Massive Stars
TLDR
More than 70% of all massive stars will exchange mass with a companion, leading to a binary merger in one-third of the cases, greatly exceed previous estimates and imply that binary interaction dominates the evolution of massive stars, with implications for populations ofmassive stars and their supernovae. Expand
How Massive Single Stars End Their Life
How massive stars die—what sort of explosion and remnant each produces—depends chiefly on the masses of their helium cores and hydrogen envelopes at death. For single stars, stellar winds are theExpand
Rotating massive main-sequence stars - I. Grids of evolutionary models and isochrones
We present a dense grid of evolutionary tracks and isochrones of rotating massive main-sequence stars. We provide three grids with different initial compositions tailored to compare with early OBExpand
Presupernova Evolution of Rotating Massive Stars. I. Numerical Method and Evolution of the Internal Stellar Structure
The evolution of rotating stars with zero-age main-sequence (ZAMS) masses in the range 8-25 M☉ is followed through all stages of stable evolution. The initial angular momentum is chosen such that theExpand
Single star progenitors of long gamma-ray bursts
We investigate the final fate of rotating massive single stars at different metallicities. and discuss for which initial conditions long Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs) are expected to be produced in theExpand
TYPE Ib/c SUPERNOVAE IN BINARY SYSTEMS. I. EVOLUTION AND PROPERTIES OF THE PROGENITOR STARS
We investigate the evolution of Type Ib/c supernova (SN Ib/c) progenitors in close binary systems, using new evolutionary models that include the effects of rotation, with initial masses of 12-25 M ☉Expand
THE EFFECTS OF BINARY EVOLUTION ON THE DYNAMICS OF CORE COLLAPSE AND NEUTRON STAR KICKS
We systematically examine how the presence in a binary affects the final core structure of a massive star and its consequences for the subsequent supernova explosion. Interactions with a companionExpand
Ultra-stripped supernovae: progenitors and fate
The explosion of ultra-stripped stars in close binaries can lead to ejecta masses < 0.1 M_sun and may explain some of the recent discoveries of weak and fast optical transients. In Tauris et al.Expand
