    • An efficient radiative cooling approximation for use in hydrodynamic simulations 

      Lombardi, James C. Jr; McInally, William G.; Faber, Joshua A. (Oxford University Press, 2015-02-11)
      To make relevant predictions about observable emission, hydrodynamical simulation codes must employ schemes that account for radiative losses, but the large dimensionality of accurate radiative transfer schemes is often ...
    • Simulating a stellar contact binary merger – I. Stellar models 

      Hatfull, Roger W. M.; Ivanova, Natalia; Lombardi, James C., Jr. (Oxford University Press, 2021-07-27)
      We study the initial conditions of a common envelope (CE) event resulting in a stellar merger. A merger’s dynamics could be understood through its light curve, but no synthetic light curve has yet been created for the full ...
