Key findings

In 2017, this project produced 10 peer-reviewed publications in top journals. Three more publications have been submitted and are undergoing peer-review. In particular, we have established the accuracy of M1 closure relations for radiation transport, investigated the impact of vorticity waves on the shock dynamics, studied the effect of the parameters of nuclear high-density matter on the gravitational signal from rotating core-collapse. 9 students participated in the project, resulting in five theses. We submitted two review papers, one of which is already published in a peer-reviewed journal. More information is provided in the enclosed report.
