The application of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) as distance in dicators in cosmology calls for a sound understanding of these objects. Recent years have se en a brisk development of astrophysical models which explain SNe Ia as thermonuclear explo sions of white dwarf stars. While the evolution of the progenitor is still uncertain, the expl osion mechanism certainly involves the propagation of a thermonuclear flame through the white dwarf st r. Three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations allowed… Expand
