Table 2 Initial stellar mass range and the corresponding remnant type and mass

From: The evolution of hierarchical triple star-systems

Initial mass \(\boldsymbol{(M_{\odot})}\) Remnant type Remnant mass \(\boldsymbol{(M_{\odot})}\)
1-6.5 CO WD 0.5-1.1
6.5-8 ONe WD 1.1-1.44
8- 23 NS 1.1-2
23 BH >5
  1. Note that the given masses represent approximate values. They are dependent on the metallicity and on stellar evolutionary processes that are not understood well, such as stellar winds and core overshooting (footnote a).
