Multi-dimensional simulations of the expanding supernova remnant of SN 1987A

Potter, Toby; Staveley-Smith, Lister; Reville, Brian; Ng, C-Y; Bicknell, Geoffrey; Sutherland, Ralph; Wagner, Alexander


The expanding remnant from SN 1987A is an excellent laboratory for investigating the physics of supernovae explosions. There is still a large number of outstanding questions, such as the reason for the asymmetric radio morphology, the structure of the pre-supernova environment, and the efficiency of particle acceleration at the supernova shock. We explore these questions using three-dimensional simulations of the expanding remnant between days 820 and 10,000 after the supernova. We combine a...[Show more]
