Abstract

We describe our work on the development and application of a stellar structure code to compute model sequences representing donor stars in interacting binaries subject to rapid (adiabatic) mass-loss. The donor star is assumed to remain in hydrostatic equilibrium, but no heat flow is allowed. These sequences can be used to define bifurcation sequences in close binary evolution, and to circumscribe possible survivors of common envelope evolution.
