    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...

    In this thesis we investigate a novel binary formation channel with a semi- degenerate donor and examine the stability criteria in binary systems with a massive donor. First we will review the current basics in the understanding of binary systems along with where recent research has been moving...
