Helium-rich hot subdwarfs and single low-mass white dwarfs: Formation mechanisms and further implications

Justham, Stephen; Podsiadlowski, Ph.; Han, Zhanwen; Wolf, Christian


Variations in the mass loss from single stars have been used to explain the existence of hot subdwarf stars and the existence of single low-mass white dwarfs (LMWDs). Hence remaining uncertainty in mass loss from single red-giant stars is important to the understanding of these problems. However, natural formation channels for hot subdwarfs and single LMWDs have also been proposed which do not rely on unexplained mass loss from single red-giant stars. We outline these, and discuss how the...[Show more]
