The formation and evolution of compact stars in binaries

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


The stellar evolutionary processes responsible for the formation of compact objects in interacting binary systems and their evolution are described. The common envelope phase plays a crucial role in their formation and angular momentum losses associated with magnetic braking and/or mass loss are important for their evolution. An application of these processes provides the evolutionary link between classes of interacting binary systems.
