Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1183947
Description: The Rotten Egg Nebula has at its core a binary composed of a Mira star and an A-type companion at a separation >10 au. It has been hypothesized to have formed by strong binary interactions between the ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1260313
Description: We present the results of hydrodynamic simulations of the interaction between a 10 Jupiter mass planet and a red or asymptotic giant branch stars, both with a zero-age main sequence mass of 3.5 M⊙. Dy ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/362826
Description: There is no conclusive explanation of why ∼80 per cent of planetary nebulae (PNe) are non-spherical. In the Binary Hypothesis, a binary interaction is a preferred channel to form a non-spherical PN. A ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/271264
Description: We still do not know what causes aspherical planetary nebula (PN) morphologies. A plausible hypothesis is that they are due to the presence of a close stellar or substellar companion. So far, only ~40 ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/199613
Description: The recent discovery of two Earth-mass planets in close orbits around an evolved star has raised questions as to whether substellar companions can survive encounters with their host stars. We consider ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/170979
Description: We use three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations to study the rapid infall phase of the common envelope (CE) interaction of a red giant branch star of mass equal to 0.88 M · and a companion star of ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/165789
Description: The α formalism is a common way to parametrize the common envelope interaction between a giant star and a more compact companion. The α parameter describes the fraction of orbital energy released by t ... More
