Context. The progenitors of supernovae type Ia are usually assumed to be either a single white dwarf accreting from a non-degenera te companion (the single degenerate channel) or the result of t wo merging white dwarfs (the double degenerate channel). Ho wever, no consensus currently exists as to which progenitor scenario is the correct one, or whether the… CONTINUE READING
