Nucleosynthesis as a result of multiple delayed detonations in Type Ia Supernovae


The explosion of a white dwarf of mass 1.36 M⊙ has been simulated in three dimensions with the aid of a SPH code. The explosion follows the delayed detonation paradigma. In this case the deflagration-detonation transition is induced by the large corrugation of the flame front resulting from Rayleigh-Taylor instability and turbulence. The nucleosynthetic… (More)
