Supernovae in binary systems


tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Conservation of momentum can unbind system
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Typically unbound if >0.5 total mass lost
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Disruption depends on orbit size
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Companion recoil depends on prior
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Most pulsars single implies disrupt at first SN
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Cannot explain the birth velocities of pulsars
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Kicks from asymmetric SN both enhances and retards disruption, depending on geometry
