Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/362826
Description: There is no conclusive explanation of why ∼80 per cent of planetary nebulae (PNe) are non-spherical. In the Binary Hypothesis, a binary interaction is a preferred channel to form a non-spherical PN. A ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/307915
Description: The common envelope (CE) interaction describes the swallowing of a nearby companion by a growing, evolving star. CEs that take place during the asymptotic giant branch phase of the primary may lead to ... More
