We review the formation and evolution of compact binary stars consisting of white dwarfs (WDs), neutron stars (NSs), and black holes (BHs). 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 it is more massive than that about 8 solar masses the star will go supernova and leave behind a neutron star, or if massive enough a black hole. The connected arrow goes to the left because their X-ray luminosities could be 2x10^30 erg/s or lower). An artist's impression of the merger of two neutron stars. If a star is much greater than 3 times our Sun's mass it will form a black hole at its death. Black holes, neutron stars or white dwarfs, collided and merged together. For those with serious interest in neutron stars and other compact objects, an excellent reference is "Black Holes, White Dwarfs, and Neutron Stars", by Stuart Shapiro and Saul Teukolsky (1983, John Wiley and Sons). Less massive stars will eject its outer layers and then will collapse inside, forming white dwarfs, neutron stars or black holes. If a star has between 1.4 to 4 times our Sun's mass it will form a neutron star at its death. They suggest that two compact stellar remnants, i.e. Michael Muno is an astrophysicist who uses Chandra, among other telescopes, to study some of the most exotic objects in the Universe: white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes. Our sun will form a white dwarf, a remnant of 60% of Earth's size from the original mass. Teukolsky, “Black holes, White dwarfs and Neutron stars: The physics of compact objects” (John Wiley & Sons Inc, 1983). Short duration gamma-ray bursts are thought to be caused by the merger of some combination of white dwarfs, neutron stars or black holes.
