Helium-Core White Dwarfs, Binaries, and Globular Clusters
Overview of several topics:
1) What are white dwarfs? How is a helium-core white dwarf different
from a regular white dwarf, and how are they formed?
2) What are binaries? How common are they? What kinds of stars form binaries?
What happens when they get really close together?
3) What are globular clusters? How are different from open clusters in appearance and age?
How do globular clusters change over time?
