The open-cluster initial-final mass relationship and the high-mass tail of the white dwarf distribution

Ferrario, Lilia; Wickramasinghe, Dayal; Liebert, James; Williams, Kurtis

Description

Recent studies of white dwarfs in open clusters have provided new constraints on the initial-final mass relationship (IFMR) for main-sequence stars with masses in the range 2.5-6.5 M⊙. We re-evaluate the ensemble of data that determines the IFMR and arg
