  • Type I X-ray bursts are thermonuclear burning events which occur on the surfaces of accreting neutron stars. Burning begins in a localised spot in the star's ocean layer before propagating across the entire surface as a deflagration. On the scale of the entire star, the burning front can be thought of as discontinuity. To model this, we investigated the reactive Riemann problem for relativistic deflagrations and detonations and developed a numerical solver. Unlike for the Newtonian Riemann… CONTINUE READING
