Numerical Simulation of High Velocity Stars
The origins of high velocity runaway stars have been of interest since their discovery. To shed some light on this important problem in modern astrophysics, we use rapid binary stellar evolution code. We have simulated hundreds of thousands of massive stars in binaries and track their dynamical evolution. We discuss our findings in this work. We show the results for runaway compact objects and regular stars, and discuss the implications of our results. When available, we compare our simulations with observational data.
