Abstract

We give an overview of the problems and the current status of our two-dimensional (core collapse) supernova modelling, and discuss the system of equations and the algorithm for its solution that are employed in our code. In particular we report our recent progress, and focus on the ongoing calculations that are performed on the NEC SX-8 at the HLRS Stuttgart. Especially, we will argue that it might be possible that neutrino-driven supernova explosions set in at much later times than previously considered. This, of course, enhances the need of a code that can make efficient use of the multi-node capability of the NEC SX-8 for long-time simulations of the postbounce evolution of collapsing stellar cores.
