The stellar mass range 8 {approx}< M/M{sub Sun} {approx}< 12 corresponds to the most massive asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars and the most numerous massive stars. It is host to a variety of supernova (SN) progenitors and is therefore very important for galactic chemical evolution and stellar population studies. In this paper, we study the transition from super-AGB (SAGB) star to massive star and find that a propagating neon-oxygen-burning shell is common to both the most massive electron… 
Super and massive AGB stars - IV. Final fates - Initial to final mass relation
We explore the final fates of massive intermediate-mass stars by computing detailed stellar models from the zero-age main sequence until near the end of the thermally pulsing phase. These
Final evolution of super-AGB stars and supernovae triggered by electron capture
Abstract Stars of 8–10 M⊙ form a strongly electron-degenerate oxygen–neon–magnesium core which is more massive than ∼1.1 M⊙, and become super-Asymptotic Giant Branch stars. The oxygen–neon–magnesium
The Remarkable Deaths of 9 - 11 Solar Mass Stars
The post-helium burning evolution of stars from 7 to 11 solar masses is complicated by the lingering effects of degeneracy and off-center ignition. Here stars in this mass range are studied using a
Impact of nuclear reactions on the fate of intermediate-mass stars
Stars in the mass range of 8 to 12 M (solar masses) represent the transition region between those that end their lives producing white dwarfs and those that undergo a core-collapse supernova and
Super-AGB Stars and their Role as Electron Capture Supernova Progenitors
Abstract We review the lives, deaths and nucleosynthetic signatures of intermediate-mass stars in the range ≈6–12 M⊙, which form super-AGB stars near the end of their lives. The critical mass
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.
Electron-capture supernovae exploding within their progenitor wind
The most massive stars on the asymptotic giant branch (AGB), so called super-AGB stars, are thought to produce supernovae (SNe) triggered by electron captures in their degenerate O+Ne+Mg cores.
The Dawes Review 2: Nucleosynthesis and Stellar Yields of Low- and Intermediate-Mass Single Stars
Abstract The chemical evolution of the Universe is governed by the chemical yields from stars, which in turn are determined primarily by the initial stellar mass. Even stars as low as 0.9 M⊙ can, at
Synthetic observables for electron-capture supernovae and low-mass core collapse supernovae
Stars in the mass range from 8M⊙ to 10M⊙ are expected to produceone of two types of supernovae (SNe), either electron-capture supernovae (ECSNe) or core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe), depending on
Electron-Capture and Low-Mass Iron-Core-Collapse Supernovae: New Neutrino-Radiation-Hydrodynamics Simulations
We present new 1D (spherical) and 2D (axisymmetric) simulations of electron-capture (EC) and low-mass iron-core-collapse supernovae (SN). We consider six progenitor models: the ECSN progenitor from


The supernova channel of super-AGB stars
We study the late evolution of solar metallicity stars in the transition region between white dwarf formation and core collapse. This includes the super-asymptotic giant branch (super-AGB, SAGB)
Evolution of massive AGB stars - II. model properties at non-solar metallicity and the fate of Super-AGB stars
Context. Massive AGB (hereafter super-AGB or SAGB) stars ignite carbon off-center and have initial masses ranging between Mup, the minimum initial mass for carbon ignition, and Mmas the minimum mass
Progenitors of Core-Collapse Supernovae
Knowledge of the progenitors of core-collapse supernovae is a fundamental component in understanding the explosions. The recent progress in finding such stars is reviewed. The minimum initial mass
The evolution and explosion of massive stars
Like all true stars, massive stars are gravitationally confined thermonuclear reactors whose composition evolves as energy is lost to radiation and neutrinos. Unlike lower-mass stars (M≲8M⊙),
Evolution of 8-10 solar mass stars toward electron capture supernovae. I - Formation of electron-degenerate O + NE + MG cores.
Helium cores in stars with masses near 10 M/sub sun/ are evolved from the helium burning phase; the outer edge of the core is fitted to the boundary conditions at the bottom of the hydrogen-rich
We use a collection of 14 well-measured neutron-star masses to strengthen the case that a substantial fraction of these neutron stars were formed via electron-capture (e-capture) supernovae (SNe) as
Evolution of massive AGB stars - III. the thermally pulsing super-AGB phase
Aims. We present the first simulations of the full evolution of super-AGB stars through the entire thermally pulsing AGB phase. We analyse their structural and evolutionary properties and determine
Two populations of X-ray pulsars produced by two types of supernova
It is reported that a large, well-known class of neutron-star-hosting X-ray pulsars is actually composed of two distinct subpopulations with different characteristic spin periods, orbital periods and orbital eccentricities.
We examine electron-capture supernovae (ECSNe) as sources of elements heavier than iron in the solar system and in Galactic halo stars. Nucleosynthesis calculations are performed on the basis of
Convective-reactive Proton-12C Combustion in Sakurai's Object (V4334 Sagittarii) and Implications for the Evolution and Yields from the First Generations of Stars
Depending on mass and metallicity as well as evolutionary phase, stars occasionally experience convectivereactive nucleosynthesis episodes. We specifically investigate the situation when
