The single-degenerate channel for the progenitor of type Ia supernovae with different metallicities

Abstract

The single-degenerate channel for the progenitors of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are currently accepted, in which a carbon-oxygen white dwarf (CO WD) accretes hydrogen-rich material from its companion, increases its mass to the Chandrasekhar mass limit, and then explodes as a SN Ia. Incorporating the prescription of Hachisu et al. (1999a) for the accretion… (More)
