  • Integral SPH: Connecting the partition of unit to accurate gradient estimation 

    García Senz, Domingo; Cabezón Gómez, Rubén Martín (University of Exeter, 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
  • Explosion of fast spinning Sub-Chandrasekhar mass white dwarfs 

    Cabezón Gómez, Rubén Martín; García Senz, Domingo (Springer International Publishing, 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We study the explosion of rotating sub-Chandrasekhar mass white dwarfs using three-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations. High rotational speeds are assumed in order to significantly distort the initial spherical geometry ...
  • Building initial models of rotating white dwarfs with SPH 

    Blanco Iglesias, José Miguel; García Senz, Domingo; Cabezón Gómez, Rubén Martín (2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    A general procedure to build self-gravitational, rotating equilibrium structures with the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) technique does not exist. In particular, obtaining stable rotating configurations for white ...
  • The Gaia white dwarf population within 100 pc of the Sun 

    Torres Gil, Santiago; Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto; Jiménez Esteban, F. M.; Cantero, C.; Canals, Pere; Skorobogatov, G.; Solano, E (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The recent Gaia Data Release 2 has provided an unprecedented sample of the local white dwarf population. The high astrometric resolution and the photometry provided by Gaia allows to build a clean magnitude-color diagram ...
  • The difficulty of finding double-degenerate progenitors of type Ia supernovae 

    Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto; Toonen, S.; Korol, V.; Torres Gil, Santiago (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The double-degenerate progenitors of type Ia su- pernovae (SNIa) are double white dwarf binaries with a totalmass near the Chandrasekhar limit and with merger timescales smaller than the Hubble time. The fact that we ...
  • The age-metallicity relation from a sample of white dwarf-main sequence binarie 

    Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto; Anguiano, B.; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Freeman, K. C. (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The age-metallicity relation (AMR) is a fundamental observational constraint for un-derstanding how the Galactic disc formed and evolved chemically in time. However, there is not yet an agreement on the observational ...
  • Testing the models of CV evolution 

    Pala, A. F.; Ederoclite, A; Gentile Fusillo, N. P.; Vázquez Ramió, H; Raddi, R; Abril, J; Gänsicke, Boris T.; Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The study of Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) is crucial to test our understanding of binary evolution and its application to many astrophysical phenomena, such as short gamma-ray bursts, X-ray transients and, more important, ...
  • The kinematics of white dwarfs from the SDSS DR12 

    García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Skorobogatov, G.; Torres Gil, Santiago; Anguiano, B.; Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We use the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 12, which is the largest availablewhite dwarf catalogue to date, to study the evolution of the kinematical properties of the pop-ulation of white dwarfs of the Galactic disk. ...

    Anguiano, B.; Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto; Torres Gil, Santiago; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Freeman, K. C. (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We use the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 12, which is the largest avail-able white dwarf catalog to date, to study the evolution of the kinematical properties of thepopulation of white dwarfs in the Galactic disc. ...
  • Hydrodynamic simulations of classical novae: accretion onto CO white dwarfs as SN Ia progenitors 

    Starrfield, Sumner; Bose, M; Iliadis, Christian; Hix, W. R.; Woodward, C; Wagner, R; José Pont, Jordi; Hernanz Carbó, Margarita (PoS - Proceedings of Science, 2018)
    Conference report

  • A population synthesis study of white dwarf-main sequence binaries in the galactic disk 

    Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Torres Gil, Santiago (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The companion mass ratio distribution (CMRD) of main sequence binaries is a crucial physical quantity for understanding the evolution of stars in binary systems and for constraining models of binary star formation. However, ...
