Core-collapse supernovae are among the most energetic explosions in the universe marking the catastrophic end of massive stars. In spite of rigorous studies for several decades, we still do not understand the explosion mechanism completely. Since they are related to many astrophysical phenomena such as nucleosynthesis, gamma-ray bursts and acceleration of cosmic rays, understanding of their physics has been of wide interest to the astrophysical community.In this paper, we review recent progress… 
A numerical challenge on the core-collapse supernovae: physics of neutrino and matter at extreme conditions
Core-collapse supernovae are the explosive phenomena, which occur at the end of the life of massive stars. Despite the importance of these astrophysical events, the mechanism of supernova explosion
Gravitational waves from 3D MHD core-collapse supernova simulations with neutrino transport
Core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) are among the most energetic explosions in the universe, liberating the prodigious amount of ~ 1053 erg, the binding energy of their compact remnants, neutron stars
Towards gravitational-wave astronomy of core-collapse supernova explosion
We study properties of gravitational waves based on the three-dimensional (3D) simulations, which demonstrate the neutrino-driven explosions aided by the standing accretion shock instability (SASI).
Explosion Mechanisms of Core-Collapse Supernovae
Supernova theory, numerical and analytic, has made remarkable progress in the past decade. This progress was made possible by more sophisticated simulation tools, especially for neutrino transport,
Neutrino oscillations in magnetically driven supernova explosions
We investigate neutrino oscillations from core-collapse supernovae that produce magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) explosions. By calculating numerically the flavor conversion of neutrinos in the highly
Gravitational waves from core-collapse supernovae and their related compact objects
Core-collapse supernovae have been supposed to be one of the most plausible sources of gravitational waves. Based on a series of our magnetohydrodynamic core-collapse simulations, we find that the
Gravitational-wave signatures in successful vs. failed core-collapse supernovae
In this contribution, we discuss possible gravitational-wave (GWs) signatures emitted from core-collapse supernovae that do or do not produce explosions. For the former case, we study properties of
We study the properties of gravitational waves (GWs) based on three-dimensional (3D) simulations, which demonstrate neutrino-driven explosions aided by standing accretion shock instability (SASI).
Anisotropic neutrinos and gravitational waves from black hole neutrino-dominated accretion flows in fallback core-collapse supernovae
Fallback in core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) plays an important role in determining the properties of the central compact remnants, which might produce a black hole (BH) hyperaccretion system in the


Explosion Mechanisms of Massive Stars
One of the central problems in supernova theory is the question how massive stars explode. Understanding the physical processes that drive the explosion is crucial for linking the stellar progenitors
Gravitational radiation from supernova neutrino bursts
SUPERNOVAE, the violent collapses of massive stars into neutron stars, are considered to be the strongest known sources of gravitational radiation. The quadrupole (and higher) moments of the
Effect of Anisotropic Neutrino Radiation on Supernova Explosion Energy
Since SN 1987A, many observations have indicated that supernova explosions are not spherical. The cause of the asymmetric explosion is still controversial (e.g., asymmetry in the envelope, the
On the nature of core-collapse supernova explosions
We investigate in this paper the core-collapse supernova explosion mechanism in both one and two dimensions. We verify the usefulness of neutrino-driven overturn (``convection'') between the shock
Conditions for shock revival by neutrino heating in core-collapse supernovae
Energy deposition by neutrinos can rejuvenate the stalled bounce shock and can provide the energy for the supernova explosion of a massive star. This neutrino-heating mechanism, though investigated
Asymmetric Supernova Explosions
Core collapse supernovae (SN) are the final stages of stellar evolution in massive stars during which the central region collapses, forms a neutron star (NS) or black hole, and the outer layers are
The Physics of Supernova Explosions
The modern study of supernovae involves many aspects: presupernova stellar evolution, the physics of the explosions themselves, observations at all wavelengths of the outbursts and their remnants,
Gravitational Waves from Stellar Collapse: Correlations to Explosion Asymmetries
The collapse of massive stars produces not only observable outbursts across the entire electromagnetic spectrum but, for Galactic (or near-Galactic) supernovae, detectable signals for ground-based
Radiation Hydrodynamics with Neutrinos: Stellar Core Collapse and the Explosion Mechanism of Type II Supernovae
According to the current standard picture supernova explosions of evolved massive stars are mediated by the deposition of neutrino energy in the stellar medium. Detailed numerical simulations,
Supernova neutrinos, neutrino oscillations, and the mass of the progenitor star
We investigate the initial progenitor mass dependence of the early-phase neutrino signal from supernovae taking neutrino oscillations into account. The early-phase analysis has advantages in that it
