The origin and evolution of symbiotic binaries

Abstract:

Symbiotic binaries form a diverse class of interacting binaries that can be used to constrain binary evolution theory. In this contribution we will review some of the major unsolved issues concerning symbiotic binaries, in particular the origin of the orbital-period distribution of S-type symbiotic binaries, their possible relation to a sub-class of Type la supernovae and the stability of mass transfer. We will then present some recent observations of Mira suggesting that even very wide symbi...
