We explore the morphology of Type Ia supernova remnants (SNRs) using threedimensional hydrodynamics modeling and an exponential density profile. Our model distinguishes ejecta from the interstellar medium (ISM), and tracks the ionization age of shocked ejecta, both of which allow for additional analysis of the simulated remnants. We also include the adiabatic index as a free parameter, which aects the compressibility of the fluid and emulates the eciency of cosmic ray acceleration by shock… 
From Supernova to Supernova Remnant: The Three-dimensional Imprint of a Thermonuclear Explosion
Recent progress in the three-dimensional modeling of supernovae (SN) has shown the importance of asymmetries for the explosion. This calls for a reconsideration of the modeling of the subsequent
Modelling the interaction of thermonuclear supernova remnants with circumstellar structures: the case of Tycho's supernova remnant
The well-established Type Ia remnant of Tycho's supernova (SN 1572) reveals discrepant ambient medium-density estimates based on either the measured dynamics or the X-ray emission properties. This
Three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic studies of the non-thermal X-ray morphologies of SN 1006
Context. The observations of the synchrotron emission from the supernova remnant (SNR) SN 1006 indicate a bilateral morphology, which is mainly characterized by two opposite bright limbs with knots
The circumstellar medium (CSM) of a massive star is modified by its winds before a supernova (SN) explosion occurs, and thus the evolution of the resulting supernova remnant (SNR) is influenced by
Genus Statistic Applied to the X-Ray Remnant of SN 1572: Clues to the Clumpy Ejecta Structure of Type Ia Supernovae
Clumpy structures are a common feature in X-ray images of young Type Ia supernova remnants (SNRs). Although the precise origin of such clumps remains unclear there are three generic possibilities:
The Three-dimensional Expansion of the Ejecta from Tycho's Supernova Remnant
We present the first three-dimensional measurements of the velocity of various ejecta knots in Tycho's supernova remnant, known to result from a Type Ia explosion. Chandra X-ray observations over a
Evolutions of Young Type Ia Supernova Remnants with Two Initial Density Profiles in a Turbulent Medium
The expansion index and relative contact discontinuity positions of young type Ia supernova remnants (SNRs) evolving in a turbulent medium are investigated via implementing two-dimensional
Time Evolution of Broadband Nonthermal Emission from Supernova Remnants in Different Circumstellar Environments
Supernova remnants (SNRs) are thought to be one of the major acceleration sites of galactic cosmic rays (CRs) and an important class of objects for high-energy astrophysics. SNRs produce
A CR-hydro-NEI Model of the Structure and Broadband Emission from Tycho's Supernova Remnant
Tycho's supernova remnant (SNR) is well-established as a source of particle acceleration to very high energies. Constraints from numerous studies indicate that the observed γ-ray emission results
Type Ia Supernova Models: Asymmetric Remnants and Supernova Remnant G1.9+0.3
The youngest Galactic supernova remnant, G1.9+0.3, probably the result of a Type Ia supernova, shows surprising anomalies in the distribution of its ejecta in space and velocity. In particular,


Asymmetries in the Expansion and Emission from Young Supernova Remnants
We present two-dimensional and three-dimensional numerical simulations of asymmetric young supernova remnants (SNRs) carried out with the hydrodynamical code YGUAZU, aiming to quantitatively assess
Role of Ejecta Clumping and Back-reaction of Accelerated Cosmic Rays in the Evolution of Type Ia Supernova Remnants
We investigate the role played by initial clumping of ejecta and by efficient acceleration of cosmic rays (CRs) in determining the density structure of the post-shock region of a Type Ia supernova
Simulated X-Ray Emission for a Runaway Model of Kepler's Supernova Remnant
We present two-dimensional numerical simulations of a model for Kepler's supernova remnant (SNR) carried out with the YGUAZU-A code. Following previous studies, we have assumed that the peculiar

If a sizeable fraction of the energy of supernova remnant shocks is channeled into energetic particles (commonly identified with Galactic cosmic rays), then the morphological evolution of the
Interaction of Type Ia Supernovae with Their Surroundings
Type Ia supernovae (SNe) are presumed to arise from white dwarf progenitors, which may not appreciably modify their ambient medium. We study the interaction of the resulting supernova remnants with a
Instabilities and Clumping in Type Ia Supernova Remnants
We present two-dimensional high-resolution hydrodynamical simulations in spherical polar coordinates of a Type Ia supernova interacting with a constant-density interstellar medium. The ejecta are

The Interaction of Type Ia Supernovae with their Surroundings: The Exponential profile in 2D
The evolution of Type Ia supernovae in the surrounding medium is studied using 2-dimensional numerical hydrodynamic simulations. The ejecta are assumed to be described by an exponential density

It is shown that amplification of the magnetic field in supernova remnants (SNRs) occurs in all six objects where morphological measurements are presently available in the hard X-ray continuum at
The gas density around SN 1006
The density of the ambient medium where the supernova remnant evolves is a relevant parameter for its hydrodynamical evolution, for the mechanism of particle acceleration, and for the emission at TeV
