The effects of binary evolution on the dynamics of core collapse and neutron-star kicks

Abstract:

We systematically examine how the presence in a binary affects the final core structure of a massive star and its consequences for the subsequent supernova explosion. Interactions with a companion star may change the final rate of rotation, the size of the helium core, the strength of carbon burning, and the final iron core mass. Stars with initial masses larger than ~11 M☉ that experience core collapse will generally have smaller iron cores at the point of explosion if they lost their envelo...
