White dwarfs, neutron stars, black holes, X-ray pulsars you name it and this book has it. In all it gives This is an exciting account about binary stars and the way black holes, white dwarfs, and neutron stars can evolve in them. The term compact star (sometimes compact object) is used to refer collectively to white dwarfs, neutron stars, other exotic dense stars, and black holes. This includes white dwarf stars, neutron stars and black holes. As the population of stars ages, it will consist either of the dead corpses of previous generations—dim objects such as white dwarfs or neutron stars and black holes—or of slowly evolving, faint, low-mass stars. "If they are part of a binary system, stellar remnants such as white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes may accrete matter from their companion and, in the process, shine brightly in X-rays. They suggest that two compact stellar remnants – black holes, neutron stars or white dwarfs – collided and merged together. In many binary star systems, the primary star is a compact object such as a black hole, a neutron star, or white dwarf. I like that you included the actual masses at which stars will become either a white dwarf, neutron star, or black hole. Eventually, in 100 trillion years, the last stars will have died, all that remains are their corpses: white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes. They suggest that two compact stellar remnants, i.e., black holes, neutron stars, or white dwarfs, collided and merged together. Once the last of the red dwarfs exhaust their fuel, all nuclear fusion in the universe will have ceased. I definitely needed a refresher on star life cycles since I took Intro Astronomy a few years ago. One of the assumptions was that there occurs an enormous emission of energy when black holes, neutron stars or white dwarfs collide – the galactic fusion happens for just seconds, but it sends out a vast wave of radiation.
