Close Binary Models for Luminous Blue Variable Stars

Abstract

The evolution of massive close binary stars inevitably involves mass exchange between the two stellar components as well as mass loss from the system. A combination of these two processes could produce the stellar wind-modulated behavior seen in LBVs. The possibility that LBVs are powered by accretion is examined, and does not appear to be a satisfactory general model. Instead, identification of LBVs with close binaries in high mass-loss rate or common envelope evolutionary phases shows promise.
