We perform a series of two-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations of the rotational collapse of a supernova core in axisymmetry. We employ a realistic equation of state (EOS) and take into account electron capture and neutrino transport by the so-called leakage scheme. It is an important step to apply the realistic EOS coupled with microphysics to 2D simulations for computing gravitational radiation in rotational core collapse. We use the quadrupole formula to calculate the amplitudes and 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
