  • The 1989 and 2015 outbursts of V404 Cygni: a global study of wind-related optical features 

    Mata Sánchez, D.; Muñoz Darias, T.; Casares, Jorge; Linares Alegret, Manuel (Oxford University Press, 2018-12-01)

  • The 26.3-h orbit and multiwavelength properties of the 'redback' millisecond pulsar PSR J1306-40 

    Linares Alegret, Manuel (Oxford University Press, 2018-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present the discovery of the variable optical and X-ray counterparts to the radio millisecond pulsar (MSP) PSR J1306–40, recently discovered by Keane et al. We find that both the optical and X-ray fluxes are modulated ...

  • Oxygen-neon-rich merger during common envelope evolution 

    Canals, Pere; Torres Gil, Santiago; Soker, Noam (Oxford University Press, 2018-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We conduct a population synthesis study of the common envelope evolution (CEE) of a white dwarf (WD) and an asymptotic giant branch (AGB) star and find that the potential number of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) from the core ...
  • On the parallelization of stellar evolution codes 

    Martin Rodriguez, David; José Pont, Jordi; Longland, Richard Leigh (Springer (Biomed Central Ltd.), 2018-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Multidimensional nucleosynthesis studies with hundreds of nuclei linked through thousands of nuclear processes are still computationally prohibitive. To date, most nucleosynthesis studies rely either on hydrostatic/hydrodynamic ...
  • The scatter of the M dwarf mass-radius relationship 

    Parsons, S. G.; Gänsicke, Boris T.; Marsh, T. R.; Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto (Oxford University Press, 2018-11-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    M dwarfs are prime targets in the hunt for habitable worlds around other stars. This is due to their abundance as well as their small radii and low masses and tempera- tures, which facilitate the detection of temperate, ...
  • A white dwarf catalogue from Gaia-DR2 and the Virtual Observatory 

    Jiménez Esteban, F. M.; Torres Gil, Santiago; Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto; Skorobogatov, G.; Cantero, C. (Oxford University Press, 2018-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a catalogue of 73¿221 white dwarf candidates extracted from the astrometric and photometric data of the recently published Gaia-DR2 catalogue. White dwarfs were selected from the Gaia Hertzsprung–Russell diagram ...
  • Observational constraints on the age-metallicity relation from white dwarf-Main sequence binaries 

    Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Torres Gil, Santiago; Anguiano, B.; Manser, C. J.; Gänsicke, Boris T.; Liu, X. (Astronomical Society of the Pacific Conference Series (ASP), 2017)
    Article
    Open Access
    The age-metallicity relation (AMR) is a fundamental observational property to understand how the Galactic disc formed and evolved chemically in time. However, there is not yet a consensus on the observed properties of the ...
  • Science with e-ASTROGAM: a space mission for MeV–GeV gamma-ray astrophysics 

    De Angelis, Alejandro; Tatischeff, Vincent; Grenier, Isabelle A.; José Pont, Jordi (2018-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    e-ASTROGAM (‘enhanced ASTROGAM’) is a breakthrough Observatory space mission, with a detector composed by a Silicon tracker, a calorimeter, and an anticoincidence system, dedicated to the study of the non-thermal Universe ...
  • Surface and core detonations in rotating white dwarfs 

    García Senz, Domingo; Cabezón Gómez, Rubén Martín; Domínguez, I. (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2018-07-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    The feasibility of the double detonation mechanism—surface helium detonation followed by complete carbon detonation of the core—in a rotating white dwarf with mass ;1Me is studied using three-dimensional hydrodynamic ...
