Understanding post-common-envelope evolution is important in the studies of close-binary systems. The majority of all interacting binaries with a compact object in their system (e.g. cataclysmic variables, X-ray binaries) are thought to have passed through a common-envelope (CE) phase. Current models of interacting binaries all assume, as a starting point… CONTINUE READING
