    The O star is the A component of the binary system, the former giant, while the Wolf-Rayet star is the B component, the former white dwarf. The astronomers have been unable to arrive at any explanation as to why so many stars are binary, and they are even more at a loss to explain the frequent occurrence of pairs of a very dissimilar nature.

    Different binary types are considered: cataclysmic variables, super-soft X-ray sources, double degenerate binaries, Algol-type binaries, Be binaries, X-ray binaries, and Wolf-Rayet binaries. The observational part ends with a discussion on stellar winds in massive stars, on new results of massive starbursts and on the characteristics and the.   The observations fit a model for the evolution of a binary star system consisting of two massive stars orbiting each other. The more massive and faster-evolving of the two stars is the first to shift into the Wolf-Rayet phase. Within , years or so, it explodes in a supernova, sending off a gaseous cloud and collapsing into a neutron star.

    The death of massive stars produces a variety of supernovae, which are linked to the structure of the exploding stars 1,2. The detection of several precursor stars of type II supe. mass exchange between the components is completed and peculiar objects are formed: Wolf–Rayet stars, white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes. The observational characteristics of these systems are in agreement with the modern theory of evolution of close binary systems. Investigation of these.

In this IAU Symposium on Wolf--Rayet stars, binary aspects received ample attention, notably because of the recognition that many observations of spectral and photometric variability at all accessible wavelengths are related to colliding winds or other forms of wind interaction.

Wolf–Rayet stars, often abbreviated as WR stars, are a rare heterogeneous set of stars with unusual spectra showing prominent broad emission lines of ionised helium and highly ionised nitrogen or spectra indicate very high surface enhancement of heavy elements, depletion of hydrogen, and strong stellar surface temperatures range f K to aroundK.

On the basis of recent observational evidence and new theoretical results, we construct a speculative scenario for the evolution of Wolf-Rayet central stars of planetary nebulae. Although single-star evolutionary calculations have succeeded recently in reproducing the composition of these objects, it is clear from the latest infrared observations that a new perspective has to be adopted; the Cited by:   adshelp[at] The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86AAuthor: J.S.

[C W H Loore; A J Willis] -- The formative ideas for this symposium originated in at the IAU Symposium No. 83 on "Mass Loss and Evolution of O-type Stars" held at Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island, Canada - WR stars.

Binary and Multiple Systems of Stars focuses on spectroscopic observational results and interpretations of binaries, and a few of multiple systems. Organized into 10 chapters, this book begins with the basic concepts and terminologies used in the study of binary and multiple systems of stars.

Then, the incidence of both star systems is described. While the detailed story of how such binary stars evolve is beyond the scope of our book, we do want to mention a few examples of how the stages of evolution described in this chapter may change when there are two stars in a system.

Figure Evolution of a Binary System. The more massive star evolves first to become a red giant and then a white dwarf. The white dwarf then begins to attract material from its companion, which in turn evolves to become a red giant. The motivation for this, as explained above, is the close morphological relationship between SNe IIb and Ib – SNe IIb essentially are Type Ib except for a small amount of H at early times – plus the observational evidence of the progenitor of SN J and models for its evolution that are suggestive of a binary system (Podsiadlowski et al.

Abstract. One of the most important environments in which accretion disks are found occur in interacting binaries. In this chapter I review the main properties of binary systems and the most important types of binary interactions, stable and unstable mass transfer, the role of mass loss, mass accretion, and, in the most dramatic case, the merging of the two binary components.

New observational data for Wolf-Rayet stars are interpreted in areas of atmospheric abundances, absolute magnitudes, Galactic distribution, distribution in M33, and bolometric luminosities.

According to stellar evolution models, the duration of the Wolf–Rayet phase, which is the final evolutionary phase before its death, can vary between almost zero and 10 6 years, where it is larger for higher mass and/or metallicity (Meynet and Maeder, ).The fact that only part of the galactic Wolf–Rayet stars actually show a nebula means that those tend to disperse on a time scale.

These stars, which are at least 20 times more massive than the Sun, “live fast and die hard”, according. A new model is the first characterization of the progenitor for a hydrogen-deficient supernova.

The model predicts that a bright hot star, which is the binary. observational characteristics, such as the high FRB incidence, the rapid evolution of RM, the non-evolution DM and so on. But there are some drawbacks.

For example, it cannot explain the day period of FRB J+ As more and more FRBs are detected, hopefully the question of where FRBS come from will be solved. An artist’s conception of a binary progenitor system of the supernova iPTF13bvn.
