Diagnostics of the Supernova Engine

  • Chris L. Fryer (a1), Carola Ellinger (a1), Patrick A. Young (a2) and Gregory Vance (a2)

Abstract

The standard engine behind core-collapse supernovae is continuously evolving with increasingly detailed models. At this time, most simulations focus on an engine invoking turbulence above the proto-neutron star, sometimes termed the “convection-enhanced” engine. Here we review this engine and why it has become the standard for normal supernovae, focusing on a wide set of observations that provide insight into the supernova engine.
