We discuss the effects of rotation on the evolution of accreting carbon-oxygen white dwarfs, with the emphasis on possible consequences in Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) progenitors. Starting with a slowly rotating white dwarf, we consider the accretion of matter and angular momentum from a quasi-Keplerian accretion disk. Numerical simulations with initial white dwarf masses of 0.8, 0.9 and 1.0 Mand accretion of carbon-oxygen rich matter at rates of 3 ... 10 × 10 −7 M� /yr are performed. The models… Expand

On the evolution of rapidly rotating massive white dwarfs towards supernovae or collapses
A recent study indicated that the inner cores of rapidly accreting (M > 10 -7 M ○. yr -1 ) CO white dwarfs may rotate differentially, with a shear fate near the threshold value for the onset of theExpand

Helium ignition in rotating magnetized CO white dwarfs leading to fast and faint rather than classical type Ia supernovae

Multidimensional simulations of the accretion-induced collapse of white dwarfs to neutron stars

Axisymmetric general relativistic simulations of the accretion-induced collapse of white dwarfs
The accretion-induced collapse (AIC) of a white dwarf may lead to the formation of a protoneutron star and a collapse-driven supernova explosion. This process represents a path alternative toExpand

Nickel-rich outflows from accretion discs formed by the accretion-induced collapse of white dwarfs
A white dwarf (WD) approaching the Chandrasekhar mass may in several circumstances undergo accretion-induced collapse (AIC) to a neutron star (NS) before a thermonuclear explosion ensues. It hasExpand
