Abstract

The quest for the supernova explosion mechanism has been one of the outstanding challenges in computational astrophysics for several decades. Simulations have now progressed to a stage at which the solution appears close and neutrino and gravitational wave signals from self-consistent explosion models are becoming available. Here we focus one of the recent advances in supernova modeling, the inclusion of general relativity in multidimensional neutrino hydrodynamics simulations, and present the latest simulation results for an 11.2M⊙ and a 15M⊙ progenitor. We also mention 3D effects as another aspect in supernova physics awaiting further, more thorough investigation.
