Among the most remarkable features of the stellar population of R136, the central, young, massive star cluster in the 30 Doradus complex of the Large Magellanic Cloud, are the single stars whose masses substantially exceed the canonical stellar upper mass limit of 150M⊙. A recent study by us, viz., that of Banerjee, Kroupa & Oh (2012; hereafter Paper I) indicates that such "super-canonical" (hereafter SC) stars can be formed out of a dense stellar population with a canonical initial mass func… Expand
