Neutrinos play a crucial role in the collapse and explosion of massive stars, governing the infall dynamics of the stellar core, triggering and fueling the explosion and driving the cooling and deleptonization of the newly formed neutron star. Due to their role neutrinos carry information from the heart of the explosion and, due to their weakly interacting nature, offer the only direct probe of the dynamics and thermodynamics at the center of a supernova. In this paper, we review the present… 
Neutrino Emission from Supernovae
Supernovae are the most powerful cosmic sources of MeV neutrinos. These elementary particles play a crucial role when the evolution of a massive star is terminated by the collapse of its core to a
Supernova-Explosion Mechanism Involving Neutrinos
A major part of the energy released upon the gravitational collapse of massive-star cores is carried away by neutrinos. Neutrinos play a crucial role in collapsing supernovae (SNe). At the present
Triangulation pointing to core-collapse supernovae with next-generation neutrino detectors
A core-collapse supernova releases the vast majority of the gravitational binding energy of its compact remnant in the form of neutrinos over an interval of a few tens of seconds. In the event of a
Astrophysical neutrinos: signal and background in searches for fundamental physics
As the experimental boundaries of the energy and intensity frontiers are pushed forwards, astroparticle physics increasingly becomes a key tool to understand the microscopic and macroscopic
Neutrino Signatures From Young Neutron Stars
After a successful core collapse supernova (CCSN) explosion, a hot dense proto-neutron star (PNS) is left as a remnant. Over a time of 20 or so seconds, this PNS emits the majority of the neutrinos
Potential Impact of Fast Flavor Oscillations on Neutrino-driven Winds and Their Nucleosynthesis
The wind driven by the intense neutrino emission from a protoneutron star (PNS) is an important site for producing nuclei heavier than the Fe group. Because of certain features in the neutrino
Prospects for detecting eV-scale sterile neutrinos from a galactic supernova
Future neutrino detectors will obtain high-statistics data from a nearby core-collapse supernova. We study the mixing with eV-mass sterile neutrinos in a supernova environment and its effects on the
Probing neutrino decay scenarios by using the Earth matter effects on supernova neutrinos
The observation of Earth matter effects in the spectrum of neutrinos coming from a next galactic core-collapse supernova (CCSN) could, in principle, reveal if neutrino mass ordering is normal or
Neutrinos from type Ia supernovae: The deflagration-to-detonation transition scenario
It has long been recognized that the neutrinos detected from the next core-collapse supernova in the Galaxy have the potential to reveal important information about the dynamics of the explosion and
New Developments in Flavor Evolution of a Dense Neutrino Gas
Neutrino–neutrino refraction dominates the flavor evolution in core-collapse supernovae, neutron star mergers, and the early Universe. Ordinary neutrino flavor conversions develop on timescales

In supernova (SN) spectroscopy relatively little attention has been given to the properties of optically thick spectral lines in epochs following the photosphere’s recession. Most treatments and
Exploring the relativistic regime with Newtonian hydrodynamics: an improved effective gravitational potential for supernova simulations
We investigate the possibility approximating relativistic effects in hydrodynamical simulations of stellar core collapse and post-bounce evolution by using a modified gravitational potential in an
Multi-dimensional simulations of advanced nuclear burning stages of massive stars suggest that the Si/O layers of presupernova stars harbor large deviations from the spherical symmetry typically

Deposits of clastic carbonate-dominated (calciclastic) sedimentary slope systems in the rock record have been identified mostly as linearly-consistent carbonate apron deposits, even though most

Diploma thesis
It is shown why NP-hardness still holds when this subproblem Steiner trees is omitted by considering (highly) connected networks only and focussing on the satisfaction of the flow constraints, and how much effort in computation and implementation is really necessary to solve realistic scenarios in practice.
