Interacting Compact Binaries: Modeling Mass Transfer in Eccentric Systems

Church, Ross LU ; Davies, Melvyn B LU ; Bobrick, Alexey LU and Tout, C. A. (2012) Conference on Advances in Computational Astrophysics - Methods, Tools, and Outcomes In Advances in Computational Astrophysics: methods, tools, and outcomes 453. p.175-178
Abstract
We discuss mass transfer in eccentric binaries containing a white dwarf and a neutron star (WD-NS binaries). We show that such binaries are produced from field binaries following a series of mass transfer episodes that allow the white dwarf to form before the neutron star. We predict the orbital properties of binaries similar to the observed WD-NS binary J1141+6545, and show that they will undergo episodic mass transfer from the white dwarf to the neutron star. Furthermore, we describe oil-on-water, a two-phase SPH formalism that we have developed in order to model mass transfer in such binaries.
