The detection of neutrinos from SN1987A confirmed the core-collapse nature of SN II, but the neutrinos were not noticed until after the optical discovery. The current generation of neutrino experiments are both much larger and actively looking for SN neutrinos in real time. Since neutrinos escape a new SN promptly while the first photons are not produced until the photospheric shock breakout hours later, these experiments can provide an early warning of a coming galactic SN II. A coincidence…

Design and implementation of a data collection and exchange system for SNEWS

This thesis addresses the issues of bidirectional communication, anti-coincidence and consistency, network status monitoring, multi-server protocol formalization, and security/robustness in the SNEWS project.
