The origin of subdwarf B stars – II
We have carried out a detailed binary population synthesis (BPS) study of the formation of subdwarf B (sdB) stars and related objects (sdO, sdOB stars) using the latest version of the BPS codeExpand

On the formation and evolution of black hole binaries
We present the results of a systematic study of the formation and evolution of binaries containing black holes and normal-star companions with a wide range of masses. We first reexamine the standardExpand

The first data release (DR1) of the LAMOST regular survey
The Large sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST) general survey is a spectroscopic survey that will eventually cover approximately half of the celestial sphere and collect 10Expand

Zero-age main-sequence radii and luminosities as analytic functions of mass and metallicity
We present fitting formulae for the zero-age main-sequence radii and luminosities of stars as functions of their masses and metallicities. The formulae cover masses from 0.1 to 100 Mo andExpand

Formation of Black Widows and Redbacks?Two Distinct Populations of Eclipsing Binary Millisecond Pulsars
Eclipsing binary millisecond pulsars (MSPs; the so-called black widows and redbacks) can provide important information about accretion history, pulsar irradiation of their companion stars, and theExpand

THE IMPACT OF TYPE Ia SUPERNOVA EXPLOSIONS ON HELIUM COMPANIONS IN THE CHANDRASEKHAR-MASS EXPLOSION SCENARIO
In the version of the single-degenerate scenario of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) studied here, a carbon-oxygen white dwarf explodes close to the Chandrasekhar limit after accreting material from aExpand

The short-period limit of contact binaries
The stability of mass transfer is important in the formation of contact binaries from detached binaries when the primaries of the initially detached binaries fill their Roche lobes. Using EggletonsExpand

Post-merger evolution of carbon-oxygen + helium white dwarf binaries and the origin of R Coronae Borealis and extreme helium stars
Orbital decay by gravitational-wave radiation will cause some close-binary white dwarfs (WDs) to merge within a Hubble time. The results from previous hydrodynamical WD-merger simulations have beenExpand
