Monte Carlo simulations of the binary white dwarf population: a progress report
Rights accessOpen Access
We present a detailed Monte Carlo simulator of the population of binary stars within the solar neighborhood. We have used the most updated models for stellar evolution, a complete treatment of the Roche lobe overflow episodes, as well as a full implementation of the orbital evolution. Special emphasis has been placed on processes leading to the formation of binary systems in which one of the members is a white dwarf.
