We consider the competition of the different physical processes that can affect the evolution of a flame bubble in a Type Ia supernovae — burning, turbulence and buoyancy. Even in the vigorously turbulent conditions of a convecting white dwarf, thermonuclear burning that begins at a point near the center (within 100 km) of the star is dominated by the… CONTINUE READING
