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

Abstract

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.
