Context. Modeling core-collapse supernovae (SNe) with neutrino transport in three dimensions (3D) requires tremendous computing resources and some level of approximation. We present a first comparison study of core-collapse SNe in 3D with different physics approximations and hydrodynamics codes. Aims. The objective of this work is to assess the impact of the hydrodynamics code, approximations for the neutrino, gravity treatments, and rotation on the simulation of core-collapse SNe in 3D… Expand
