Spin-up and hot spots can drive mass out of a binary
Context. The observed distribution of orbital periods of Algols with a B-type primary at birth agrees fairly well with the prediction from conservative theory. Conservative evolution fails, however,Expand
The WR and O-type star population predicted by massive star evolutionary synthesis
Abstract Evolutionary calculations of massive single stars and of massive close binaries that we use in the population number synthesis (PNS) code are presented. Special attention is given to theExpand
The Brightest Binaries
Constants massive stars massive single stars massive close binaries massive star population number synthesis.
Mass loss out of close binaries. The formation of Algol-type systems, completed with case B RLOF
Context. Several authors have previously introduced liberal evolution of interacting binaries, with the purpose of meeting various observed binary characteristics better than with conservativeExpand
The effect of close binary evolution on photoionization models for evolving starbursts
Abstract Using a population number synthesis code and detailed massive star evolutionary calculations, Van Bever & Vanbeveren (1998) investigated the effect of close binary evolution on the WR andExpand
Mass loss out of close binaries. II
Liberal evolution of interacting binaries has been proposed previously by several authors in order to meet various observed binary characteristics better than conservative evolution does. SinceExpand

Mass Loss out of Close Binaries
It has been established that Algols, issuing from a binary with a B‐type primary at birth, show more observed systems at large mass ratios than calculated with the conservative assumption, where noExpand
The effects of binaries on the evolution of UV spectral features in massive starbursts
In this paper we investigate the effects of binaries having an initial period between 1 day and 10 years on the theoretical simulation of the evolution of UV spectral features in massive starbursts.Expand
Evolution of interacting binaries with a B type primary at birth
We revisited the analytical expression for the mass ratio distribution for non-evolved binaries with a B type primary. Selection effects governing the observations were taken into account in order toExpand
