Evolution of the semi-major axis (top), mass-transfer rate (mid) and period (bottom, in days) for the circular RLOF systems as a function of the donor’s mass. The curves correspond to different initial orbital periods: 30 (solid, black), 100 (red, dotted), 200 (green, short-dashed) and 365 days (blue, long-dashed). The initial masses are 1.2 + 1.0 M.
