POPCORN: A comparison of binary population synthesis codes

  title={POPCORN: A comparison of binary population synthesis codes},
  author={J. S. W. Claeys and Silvia Toonen and Nicki Mennekens},
  journal={arXiv: Solar and Stellar Astrophysics},
We compare the results of three binary population synthesis codes to understand the differences in their results. As a first result we find that when equalizing the assumptions the results are similar. The main differences arise from deviating physical input.

The binary progenitor evolution of supernovae

Massive stars that lose their hydrogen-rich envelope down to a few tenths of a solar mass explode as extended type IIb supernovae, an intriguing subtype that links the hydrogen-rich type II
