PopCORN: Hunting down the differences between binary population synthesis codes

Toonen, S.; Claeys, J. S. W.; Mennekens, N.; Ruiter, Ashley

Description

Binary population synthesis (BPS) modelling is a very effective tool to study the evolution and properties of various types of close binary systems. The uncertainty in the parameters of the model and their effect on a population can be tested in a statistical way, which then leads to a deeper understanding of the underlying (sometimes poorly understood) physical processes involved. Several BPS codes exist that have been developed with different philosophies and aims. Although BPS has been very...[Show more]
