Computer Simulations of Stellar Collapse and Supernovae Explosions: Non-Rotating and Rotating Models

  • Wolfgang Hillebrandt
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (ASIC, volume 90)


Although over the last fifteen years many authors have investigated the question of whether or not the gravitational collapse of the cores of highly evolved massive stars (M ≳ 10 MƟ) can give rise to the observed (type II) supernova events, the problem has not been solved yet, despite the fact that the general ideas are quite simple and convincing.
