Merging binaries in the Galactic Center: The eccentric Kozai–Lidov mechanism with stellar evolution

Abstract:

Most, if not all, stars in the field are born in binary configurations or higher multiplicity systems. In dense stellar environment such as the Galactic Center (GC), many stars are expected to be in binary configurations as well. These binaries form hierarchical triple-body systems, with the massive black hole (MBH) as the third, distant object. The stellar binaries are expected to undergo large-amplitude eccentricity and inclination oscillations via the so-called ‘eccentric Kozai–Lidov' mech...
