The progenitors of type Ia supernovae

Abstract:

Using binary population synthesis (BPS), we studied the birthrates of SNe Ia for two progenitor models - the single degenerate model and the double degenerate model. We find that the birthrates from both models are within a factor of a few comparable to those inferred observationally. For each model, we investigate different star-formation histories (single star burst or constant star formation), different metallicities (Z = 0.02, 0.004, 0.001), different parameters for the BPS model (mass tr...
