The spin of a number of black holes (BHs) in X-ray binaries (XBs) has been predicted (and, in at least three cases, confirmed by observations) by using a binary stellar evoluti on model with Case-C mass transfer . The rotational energy of such BHs is sufficient to power up (long) gamma-ray bursts a nd hypernovae (GRBs/HNe) and still leave a Kerr BH behind. However, strong magnetic fields (B fields) and/or dyn amo effects in the interior of a BH-progenitor star may be capable of rapidly…

Stellar Structure and Evolution

This book introduces the theory of the internal structure of stars and their evolution in time. It presents the basic physics of stellar interiors, methods for solving the underlying equations, and
