Received date / Accepted date Abstract. Core collapse supernovae are a promising source of detectable gravitational waves. Most of the existing (multidimensional) numerical simulations of core collapse in general relativity have been done using approxima- tions of the Einstein field equations. As recently shown by Dimmelmeier et al. (2002a,b), one of the most inter- esting such approximation is the so-called conformal flatness condition (CFC) of Isenberg, Wilson and Mathews. Building on this…
