The Intrinsic Stochasticity of Single-Degenerate Type Ia Supernovae - A short introduction

An asymmetric deflagration breaking out of the white dwarf’s surface after a buoyant rise shortly after initial ignition.


Presenting a new set of three-dimensional simulations of single-degenerate (SD) Type Ia supernovae undergoing a gravitationally confined detonation incorporating new findings concerning the spatial distribution for the initial ignition, implications concerning nature and intrinsic stochasticity of outcomes for SD Type Ia supernovae will be discussed.
