Massive star mergers: Induced mixing and nucleosynthesis

Abstract:

We study the nucleosynthesis and the induced mixing during the merging of massive stars inside a common envelope. The systems of interest are close binaries, initially consisting of a massive red supergiant and a main-sequence companion of a few solar masses. We apply parameterized results based on hydrodynamical simulations to model the stream-core interaction and the response of the star in a standard stellar-evolution code. Preliminary results are presented illustrating the possibility of ...
