The slow merger of massive stars: Merger types and post-merger evolution

Abstract:

We study the slow merger of two massive stars inside a common envelope: The initial close binary system consists of a massive red supergiant and a main-sequence companion of a few solar, masses. The merger product is a massive supergiant with an interior structure (core mass and composition profile) which is significantly different from that of a single supergiant that has evolved in isolation: Using a parameterized approach for the stream-core interaction, we modelled the merger phase and ha...
