Recent observational surveys have established that most massive stars are in binary systems, having a companion star in orbit around them. In most cases, the orbital separation of the two components is so small that they will interact, exchanging mass and angular momentum, before exploding. Binary interaction often has such severe consequences that it fundamentally alters the further evolution of both members. Emmanouil Zapartas presents a comprehensive study of the impact of binary evolution on the properties of core-collapse supernovae and their progenitors.
