Current Research Projects
  Exploiting state-of-the-art numerical methods from multi-dimensional computational fluid
  dynamics our research is currently focused on the following problems

link The Physics of Thermonuclear Supernovae
W.Hillebrandt, M.Kromer, F.Röpke, S.Taubenberger

The incineration of white dwarfs by thermonuclear burning fronts is studied by means of 3d hydrodynamics simulations. The resulting nucleosynthesis and the spectral signature of the events are calculated.



link The Explosion Mechanism of Core Collapse Supernovae
H.-T.Janka, B.Müller, E.Müller

The role of neutrino heating and flow instabilities for the explosion mechanism of core collapse supernovae is studied by means of multi-dimensional radiation hydrodynamic simulations.



link Relativistic Hydrodynamics
H-T.Janka, P.Montero, B.Müller, E.Müller

The collapse of (rotating) stellar cores to neutron stars in general relativity is studied and the resulting gravitational wave signal is calculated. Furthermore, non-radial neutron star oscillations are studied in full GR.
