Temporal evolution of a binary system with small pericentre distance, similar to that of Fig. 1 in Kaib & Raymond (2014). In the top left panel we plot the semimajor axis (blue line) and the pericentre distance (black line). The red line indicates the limit of stellar collision. The top right panel shows the inclination. Bottom panels show a zoom over the minimum distance of approach between the stars.
