So far, there exist many explosion models proposed by theorists for different types of supernovae, but still there are no definite criteria to decide which of the models are realized in nature. Only a few parameters, such as kinetic energy and total Ni production, can be derived directly from the modelling of the explosion and compared with the observational values. The subsequent evolution of the exploded star gives us much more possibilities to compare models and to decide which one fits… CONTINUE READING
