Fig. 6


Positions of individual systems in the initial parameter space. Md,i is the initial mass of the mass losing helium star. Filled squares indicate systems that experience detonations at some point in their evolution, circles systems that do not. Crosses denote numerically unstable systems whose evolution could not be tracked to the point of detonation or to a time when the binary is unable to produce a detonation due to He-depletion in the donor. The color scale (applicable to detonating systems only) indicates the amount of helium present (MHe) on the surface of the white dwarf at the time of detonation. Systems located on the black line fill their Roche lobes from the beginning of the simulation. The identity of each system shown in Fig. 4 is indicated.
