    • On the onset of runaway stellar collisions in dense star clusters -- II. Hydrodynamics of three-body interactions 

      Gaburov, Evghenii; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Portegies Zwart, Simon (Oxford University Press, 2009-10-18)
      The onset of runaway stellar collisions in young star clusters is more likely to initiate with an encounter between a binary and a third star than between two single stars. Using the initial conditions of such three-star ...
    • Stability and Coalescence of Massive Twin Binaries 

      Hwang, Jason A.; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Rasio, Frederic. A.; Kalogera, Vicky (The American Astronomical Society., 2015-06-12)
      Massive stars are usually found in binaries, and binaries with periods less than 10 days may have a preference for near equal component masses ("twins"). In this paper we investigate the evolution of massive twin binaries ...
    • Twin Binaries: Studies of Stability, Mass Transfer, and Coalescence 

      Lombardi, James C. Jr; Holtzman, William; Dooley, Katherine L.; Gearity, Kyle; Kalogera, Vicky; Rasio, Frederic A. (Institute of Physics, 2011-08-20)
      Motivated by suggestions that binaries with almost equal-mass components (“twins”) play an important role in the formation of double neutron stars and may be rather abundant among binaries, we study the stability of ...
