Periodic Reporting for period 1 - SNSM (Spectral synthesis of multidimensional supernova explosion models)
Reporting period: 2016-10-01 to 2018-09-30
3D modelling, we are able to remove significant parametrization occurring in current 1D models, and present
predictions with significantly improved accuracy. At the same time it allows the first tests of 3D explosion simulations.
The new spherical coordinate system transport algorithm has generic value beyond astronomy; it can find potential
application in any kind of 3D transport simulations, including climate and particle physics.
Application-wise, the analysis of neutrino-exploded stars is also a new state-of-the-art, as previous simulations have relied
on artificially triggered explosions by pistons or thermal bombs. The new improved models make more realistic
representation of the inner dynamic structure and nucleosynthesis.
