Low mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) are systems of compact stellar remnants accreting from a low mass companion star. These systems show various levels of mass transfer on various timescales. Many aspects of accretion in these systems are still not fully understood, specifically the emission...
Constraining the Physics of the X-ray Irradiated Accretion Discs in Low-mass X-ray Binaries with ObservationsDownload
Recurring outbursts associated with matter flowing onto compact stellar remnants (black holes and neutron stars) in low-mass X-ray binary systems provide constraints on the poorly understood accretion process. Multi-wavelength light-curves and spectra of these bright outbursts provide powerful...
Constraining the physics of relativistic jets with radio through (sub-)millimetre properties of X-ray binariesDownload
Astrophysical jets are ubiquitous phenomena in our universe, linked to a wide range of objects, from young stars to black holes. These powerful, highly collimated outflows deposit significant amounts of energy and matter into the surrounding medium, affecting star formation, galaxy evolution, and...
In this thesis we study MT from giant and subgiant donors in binary stars. We develop a MT simulation framework based on the MESA set of stellar libraries, which is suitable to study extremely high MT rates and predict the stability of MT. We find that the MT from giant donors is much more stable...
