Globular clusters has been proposed as testbeds for type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), which have high values in astrophysics, especially in Cosmology and galactic chemical evolution. Here, by using a detailed binary population synthesis (BPS) approach, we studied the birthrates of SNe Ia from various of progenitor models in globular clusters, including the single degenerate model and the double-degenerate model. In the single degenerate model, a carbon-oxygen white dwarfs (CO WD) accretes material from a non-degenerate star to increase its mass to the Chandrasekhar mass limit, which then leads to an SN Ia explosion. In the double-degenerate model, two CO WDs in a close binary are brought together by gravitational wave radiation and merge, which results in an SN Ia explosion. We also discussed the properties of these progenitor models in globular clusters.
