Cataclysmic Variables with Evolved Secondaries and the Progenitors of AM CVn Stars

Abstract:

We present the results of a systematic study of cataclysmic variables (CVs) and related systems, combining detailed binary-population synthesis (BPS) models with a grid of 120 binary evolution sequences calculated with a Henyey-type stellar evolution code. In these sequences, we used 3 masses for the white dwarf (0.6, 0.8, 1.0 Msun) and seven masses for the donor star in the range of 0.6-1.4 Msun. The shortest orbital periods were chosen to have initially unevolved secondaries, and the longes...
