On the use of hydrogen recombination energy during common envelope events

27 Apr 2018 Ivanova Natalia

In this Letter we discuss what happens to hydrogen recombination energy that is released during regular common envelope (CE) events, as opposed to self-regulated CE events. We show that the amount of recombination energy that can be transferred away by either convection or radiation from the regions where recombination takes place is negligible... (read more)
