Modeling Supermassive Primordial Stars with MESA

  author={Nic Herrington and Daniel J. Whalen and Tyrone E. Woods},
Supermassive stars forming at 𝑧 ∼ 15 - 20 are one of the leading contenders for the origin of the first quasars, over 200 of which have now been discovered at 𝑧 > 6. These stars likely form in pristine, atomically cooled haloes immersed in strong Lyman-Werner UV backgrounds or in highly supersonic baryon streaming flows. Atomic cooling triggers catastrophic baryon collapse capable of building up stars at rates of up to ∼ 1 M (cid:12) yr − 1 . Here we examine the evolution of supermassive stars…
