Alumni Project

Shedding New Light on Exploding Stars

The project will use modeling of integrated complex systems to search for the explosion mechanism of core-collapse supernovae – one of the most important and challenging problems in nuclear astrophysics. The project involves a very broad multi-displicinary team of scientists, computer scientists and mathematicians and has laid out a careful 5-year plan.

These calculations, when carried out on terascale machines, will provide important theoretical insights and support for the large experimental efforts in high energy and nuclear physics.
