Final Report - LIMBS (Detailed modelling of low- and intermediate-mass binary stars)

Project ID: 220440
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

The EU-funded LIMBS project sought to better understand the physical processes that are present in interacting low and intermediate mass binary stars. The project also aimed to develop a computational framework for the detailed calculation of these stars evolution.

This final activity report provides an overview of the LIMBS objectives and then focuses on the activities that were undertaken for their accomplishment. The implemented methods are summarised, along with the necessary corrective actions. The project resulted in the development of Binstar, a detailed binary-stellar evolution code, whose function is illustrated in a diagram. In addition, an innovative approach was introduced for the evaluation of the modelled systems. The latter is summarised at the end of the report.
