  • The unreasonable effectiveness of experiments in constraining nova nucleosynthesis 

    Parikh, Anuj Ramesh (EDP Sciences, 2013)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Classical nova explosions arise from thermonuclear ignition in the envelopes of accreting white dwarfs in close binary star systems. Detailed observations of novae have stimulated numerous studies in theoretical astrophysics ...
  • The white dwarf population of tri-axial haloes 

    Torres Gil, Santiago; Camacho Díaz, Judit; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The nature of the several microlensing events observed by the MACHO team towards the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is still a controversial subject. Substellar objects and stars with masses larger than ~ 1M¿ have been ...
  • On the origin of high-field magnetic white dwarfs 

    García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Torres Gil, Santiago; Loren Aguilar, Pablo; Aznar Siguan, Gabriela; Camacho Díaz, Judit; Kulebi, Baybar; Isern Vilaboy, Jordi; Althaus, Leandro Gabriel; Corsico, Alejandro H. (Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2013-01-01)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Every two years, white dwarf researchers and enthusiasts meet to exchange their knowledge and discuss recent developments in white dwarf theory and observations. These proceedings are from the 18th European White Dwarf ...
  • Dark energy and thermonuclear supernovae 

    Domínguez, Inmaculada; Bravo Guil, Eduardo; Piersanti, L.; Tornambé, A.; Straniero, O.; Höfflich, P. (Ulla, A.; Manteiga, M. / Real Sociedad Española de Física, 2007)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Nowadays it is widely accepted that the current Universe is dominated by dark energy and exotic matter, the so called StandardModel of Cosmoloy or _CDM model. All the available data (Thermonuclear Supernovae, Cosmic Microwave ...
  • Simulations of radiative shocks and jet formation in laboratory plasmas 

    Velarde, Pedro; González, Matthias; Oliva, Eduardo; Kasperczuk, Andrzej; Pisarczyk, Tadeusz; Ullschmied, Jiri; Stehlé, Chantal; Rus, Bedrich; García Senz, Domingo; Bravo Guil, Eduardo; Relaño, Antonio (IOP Publishing, 2007)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present the simulations of two relevant hydrodynamical problems related to astrophysical phenomena performed by three different codes. The numerical results from these codes will be compared in order to test both the ...
  • Supernovae and dark energy 

    Domínguez, Inmaculada; Bravo Guil, Eduardo; Piersanti, Luciano; Straniero, Oscar; Tornambé, Amedeo (Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2008)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A decade ago the observations of thermonuclear supernovae at high-redhifts showed that the expansion rate of the Universe is accelerating and since then, the evidence for cosmic acceleration has gotten stronger. This ...
  • Smoothed particle hydrodynamics: checking a tensor approach to calculating gradients 

    Escartín Vigo, José Antonio; García Senz, Domingo; Cabezón Gómez, Rubén Martín (2013)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
  • Classical and recurrent nova models 

    José Pont, Jordi; Casanova Bustamante, Jordi; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Hernanz Carbó, Margarita; Shore, Steven N.; Calder, A. (2011)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Remarkable progress in the understanding of nova outbursts has been achieved through combined efforts in photometry, spectroscopy and numerical simulations. According to the thermonuclear runaway model, novae are powered ...
  • White dwarf mergers and the origin of R coronae borealis stars 

    Lorén Aguilar, Pablo; Longland, Richard Leigh; José Pont, Jordi; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Althaus, Leandro Gabriel; Isern-Fontanet, J. (2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present a nucleosynthesis study of the merger of a 0.4 M⊙ helium white dwarf with a 0.8 M⊙ carbon-oxygen white dwarf, coupling the thermodynamic history of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics particles with a post-processing ...
