Abstract

Applying the microscopic nuclear physics ideas to macroscopic stellar systems, we study the evolution of the compact di-stars in mass asymmetry (transfer) coordinate. Depending on the internal structure of constituent stars, the initial mass asymmetry, total mass, and orbital angular momentum, the close di-star system can either exist in symmetric configuration or fuse into mono-star. The limitations for the formation of stable symmetric binary stars are analyzed. The role of symmetrization of asymmetric binary star in the transformation of potential energy into internal energy of binary star and the release of a large amount of energy is revealed.
