Dynamics and gravitational wave signature of axisymmetric rotational core collapse

  title={Dynamics and gravitational wave signature of axisymmetric rotational core collapse},
  author={T. Zwerger and Ewald M{\"u}ller},
We have carried out a comprehensive parameter study of the dynamics of rotational core collapse in massive stars. The iron cores have been approximated by axisymmetric rotating = 4=3 polytropes in rotational equilibrium. Any transport effects by neutrinos have been neglected. We have computed 18 initial models which differ by their amount of rotational energy and their distribution of angular momentum. The initial models range from slowly to rapidly rotating and from rigidly to extremely… CONTINUE READING
