Modeling Type Ia supernova explosions

Ropke, F. K.; Seitenzahl, I. R.; Benitez, S; Fink, M; Pakmor, R; Kromer, M; Sim, Stuart A; Ciaraldi-Schoolmann, F; Hillebrandt, Wolfgang


Despite their astrophysical significanceas a major contributor to cosmic nucleosynthesis and as distance indicators in observational cosmologyType Ia supernovae lack theoretical explanation. Not only is the explosion mechanism complex due to the interaction of (potentially turbulent) hydrodynamics and nuclear reactions, but even the initial conditions for the explosion are unknown. Various progenitor scenarios have been proposed. After summarizing some general aspects of Type Ia supernova...[Show more]
