Irradiation effects in compact binaries

Abstract:

Irradiation of the secondaries in close binary systems affects their appearance and can drastically change their internal structure and hence long-term evolution.. In this paper we review the main effects of external irradiation in close binaries with compact primaries, such as the distortion of the shape of the secondary and the conditions for the occurrence of outer critical configurations; and apply these to normal Xray binaries,, including systems such as HZ Her/Her X-1, Vela X-1 and blac...
