Non Conservative Massive Binary Evolution

How Much Mass Leaves the Binary during the Evolution from OB+OB to WR+OB
  • D. Vanbeveren
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 89)


The observations give us on one hand the mass ratio (q) distribution of OB+OB type binaries in a stage prior to Roche lobe overflow (RLOF), and on the other hand the q distribution of WR binaries which are considered to be in a stage after RLOF. By comparing both distributions one may hope to be able to say something about the mass loss during RLOF.
