- Optically thick winds are used in recent binary evolution models for Type la supernova as well as in reproducing light curves of recurrent novae that are strong candidates of SN la progenitor. Here, I present the metallicity dependence of optically thick winds for a wide range of parameters of WD mass and chemical composition, X and Z. In the case of low metallicity, the wind is very weak, the theoretical light curve develops slowly, and the expansion velocity of the wind is small.
