We present a series of two-dimensional core-collapse supernova simulations for a range of progenitor masses and different input physics. These models predict a range of supernova energies and compact remnant masses. In particular, we study two mechanisms for black hole formation: prompt collapse and delayed collapse owing to fallback. For massive progenitors (greater than 20 M☉), after a hydrodynamic time for the helium core (a few minutes to a few hours), fallback drives the compact object… Expand
