The Role of Binaries in the Carbon Star Phenomenon

  • Robert D. McClure (a1)

Abstract

This presentation reviews the role that binaries play in the production of Barium, CH, and S stars. New radial velocity observations confirming the binary nature of subgiant CH stars are also discussed. Evidence is presented that the early R-type carbon stars exhibit no binaries. It is suggested that they were once all binaries, but having small separations, a coalescing companion has caused them to mix near the helium core flash.
