The joint evolution of normal and compact magnetized stars in close binaries: Analytical description and statistical simulation

  • V. M. Lipunov
  • K. A. Postnov


The joint evolution of normal and compact stars in binaries of low and moderate masses (≤10M) is considered. The classification and analytical description are given for such evolution. The Monte-Carlo simulation of great number of binaries (∼ 500 000) with different initial parameters allows to evaluate the relative amount of binaries of each evolutionary stage in the Galaxy. The simulation of binary evolution in an elliptical galaxy reveals evolutionary properties of a number of type I supernova explosions in ellipticals. The gravitational wave spectrum in the simulated galaxy has also been obtained, the maximum metric strain amplitudeh being 10−19.5 at frequencesv≃10−4 Hz.
