    In this contribution we revisit the initial-final mass relationship of white dwarfs, which links the mass of a white dwarf with that of its progenitor in the main-sequence. Although this function is of paramount importance ...
  • The effects of metallicity on the Galactic disk population of white dwarfs 

    Cojocaru, Elena Ruxandra; Torres Gil, Santiago; Isern Vilaboy, Jordi; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique (2014-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Context. It has been known for a long time that stellar metallicity plays a significant role in the determination of the ages of the different Galactic stellar populations, when main sequence evolutionary tracks are employed. ...
  • The white dwarf cooling sequence of NGC 6791: an unique tool for stellar astrophysics 

    García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Torres Gil, Santiago; Renedo Rouco, Isabel; Camacho Díaz, Judit; Althaus, Leandro Gabriel; Córsico, Alejandro Hugo; Salaris, Maurizio; Isern Vilaboy, Jordi (2011)
    Article
    Open Access
    Context. NGC 6791 is a well-studied, metal-rich open cluster that is so close to us that it can be imaged down to luminosities fainter than that of the termination of its white-dwarf cooling sequence, thus allowing for ...
