Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) play an important role in the study of cosmic evolution, especially in cosmology. There are several progenitor models for SNe Ia proposed in the past years. By considering the effect of accretion disk instability on the evolution of white dwarf (WD) binaries, we performed detailed binary evolution calculations for the WD + red-giant (RG) channel of SNe Ia, in which a carbon-oxygen WD accretes material from a RG star to increase its mass to the Chandrasekhar mass… Expand

Abstract Employing Eggleton's stellar evolution code and assuming optically thick winds, we systematically studied the He star donor channel of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), in which a carbon-oxygenExpand
Companion stars of Type Ia supernovae and single low-mass white dwarfs

Theoretical uncertainties of the Type Ia supernova rate
It is thought that Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are explosions of carbon-oxygen white dwarfs (CO WDs). Two main evolutionary channels are proposed for the WD to reach the critical density required forExpand
The helium star donor channel for the progenitors of type Ia supernovae with different metallicities

The influence of chemical composition on models of Type Ia supernovae
Type Ia supernovae are bright stellar explosions distinguished by standardizable light curves that allow for their use as distance indicators for cosmological studies. Despite the highly successfulExpand
Progenitors of type Ia supernovae and their surviving companion stars
Abstract Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are the best cosmological distance indicator, however, there is still no agreement on the nature of their progenitors. There are mainly two progenitor scenarios,Expand
A likely candidate of type Ia supernova progenitors: the X-ray pulsating companion of the hot subdwarf HD 49798
HD 49798 is a hydrogen depleted subdwarf O6 star and has an X-ray pulsating companion (RX J0648.0-4418). The X-ray pulsating companion is a massive white dwarf. Employing Eggleton's stellar evolutionExpand
