White dwarf accretion and type Ia supernovae

  • Z. Han (a1) and X. Chen (a1)

Abstract

Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are believed to be thermonuclear explosions of carbon-oxygen white dwarfs at a mass close to the Chandrasekhar limit. However, a white dwarf at birth has a significantly lower mass and needs to accrete mass to grow to the limit for the explosion. Various progenitor models have been proposed and those models play an important role in our understanding of SNe Ia and cosmology.
