Type Ia supernova diversity: white dwarf central density as a secondary parameter in three-dimensional delayed detonation models
Delayed detonations of Chandrasekhar mass white dwarfs (WDs) have been very successful in explaining the spectra, light curves and the width–luminosity relation of spectroscopically normal Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia). The ignition of the thermonuclear deflagration flame at the end of the convective carbon ‘simmering’ phase in the core of the WD is still not well understood, and much about the ignition kernel distribution remains unknown. Furthermore, the central density at the time of ignition...[Show more]
