Novae are some of the most commonly detected optical transients and have the potential to provide valuable information about binary evolution. Binary population synthesis codes have emerged as the most effective tool for modelling populations of binary systems, but such codes have traditionally employed greatly simplified nova physics, precluding detailed study. In this work, we implement a model treating H and He novae as individual events into the binary population synthesis code binary_c… Expand


Recurrent novae and long-term evolution of mass-accreting white dwarfs -- toward the accurate mass retention efficiency
The mass growth rate of mass-accreting white dwarfs (WDs) is a key factor in binary evolution scenarios toward Type Ia supernovae. Many authors have reported very different WD mass increasing rates.Expand

Mass-accreting white dwarfs and type Ia supernovae
Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) play a prominent role in understanding the evolution of the Universe. They are thought to be thermonuclear explosions of mass -accreting carbon-oxygen white dwarfs (COExpand

AM CVn Stars: Status and Challenges
AM CVn stars are the outcome of a fine-tuned binary star evolution pathway. They are helium-rich and their binary orbital periods are less than 65 minutes. They evolve through one or two commonExpand
Evolution of Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars
▪ Abstract The current status of modeling the evolution and nucleosynthesis of asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars is reviewed. The principles of AGB evolution have been investigated in recent yearsExpand

Adiabatic mass loss in binary stars. III. From the base of the red giant branch to the tip of asymptotic giant branch
The distinguishing feature of the evolution of close binary stars is the role played by the mass exchange between the component stars. Whether the mass transfer is dynamically stable is one of theExpand
