Core-Collapse Supernovae

The collpase of massive stars at the end of their stellar evolutions produce among the most energetic explosions in the universe, naming core-collapse supernovae. We study the explosion mechanism of core-collapse supernovae through multi-dimensional hydrodynamics simulations with neutrino transport. Our simulations could also predict gravitational wave and neutrino emissions from these collapsars.
