Blue straggler stars : Formation channels

Davies, M. B. LU (2016) Cosmic-Lab Conference: Star Clusters as Cosmic Laboratories for Astrophysics, Dynamics and Fundamental Physics, MODEST 2016 In Memorie della Societa Astronomica Italiana - Journal of the Italian Astronomical Society 87(4). p.479-482
Abstract

I review formation channels for blue stragglers. I consider how they may be produced via collisions between two single main-sequence stars, or via collisions during encounters involving binary stars. Further, I discuss how blue stragglers may be produced via the evolution of isolated binaries. Observations of globular clusters suggest that both mechanisms are contributing.
