This paper presents new calculations of instabilities, mixing, and clumping in the ejecta of SN 1987A, which are an extension of calculations published of Arnett et al. (1989) and which make it possible to differentiate between physical and numerical effects. It is shown that perturbations of physically reasonable amplitude provide sufficient mixing and clumping to explain the earlier than expected observations of X-rays and gamma rays and the shape of the SN 1987A light curve. It is also shown… 
SUPERNOVA EXPLOSIONS: UNDERSTANDING MIXING
It has been known since 1987 that many features of supernovae cannot be described by the spherically-symmetric picture assumed in one-dimensional explosion models. However, the study of the
Instabilities and Clumping in Type Ia Supernova Remnants
We present two-dimensional high-resolution hydrodynamical simulations in spherical polar coordinates of a Type Ia supernova interacting with a constant-density interstellar medium. The ejecta are
Effects of Jetlike Explosion in SN 1987A
We study the effects of jetlike explosion in SN 1987A. Calculations of the explosive nucleosynthesis and the matter mixing in a jetlike explosion are performed, and their results are compared with
Supernova Experiments on the Nova Laser
Supernova (SN) 1987A focused attention on the critical role of hydrodynamic instabilities in the evolution of supernovae. To test the modeling of these instabilities, we are developing laboratory
Scaling supernova hydrodynamics to the laboratory
Supernova (SN) 1987A focused attention on the critical role of hydrodynamic instabilities in the evolution of supernovae. To test the modeling of these instabilities, we are developing laboratory
Three-dimensional numerical investigations of the morphology of Type Ia SNRs
We explore the morphology of Type Ia supernova remnants (SNRs) using threedimensional hydrodynamics modeling and an exponential density profile. Our model distinguishes ejecta from the interstellar
ALMA spectral survey of Supernova 1987A – molecular inventory, chemistry, dynamics and explosive nucleosynthesis
We report the first molecular line survey of Supernova 1987A in the millimetre wavelength range. In the ALMA 210--300 and 340--360 GHz spectra, we detected cold (20--170 K) CO, 28SiO, HCO+ and SO,
The 44Ti-powered spectrum of SN 1987A
SN 1987A provides a unique opportunity to study the evolution of a supernova from explosion into very late phases. Owing to the rich chemical structure, the multitude of physical processes involved
Influence of macroclumping on type II supernova light curves
Core-collapse supernova (SN) ejecta are probably structured on both small and large scales, with greater deviations from spherical symmetry nearer the explosion site. Here, we present 2D and 3D gray
Optical and ultraviolet spectroscopy of sn 1995n: evidence for strong circumstellar interaction
Optical and ultraviolet observations of the Type IIn supernova SN 1995N at epochs between 321 and 1799 days after the explosion show three distinct velocity components. The narrow lines come from
