Numerical code of the neutrino-transfer in three dimensions for core-collapse supernovae

  • Kohsuke Sumiyoshi (a1) and Shoichi Yamada (a2)

Abstract

We develop a new numerical code of the multi-energy and multi-angle neutrino-radiation transfer in three dimensions (3D) for core-collapse supernovae. Our 3D code to solve the Boltzmann equations is based on the discretized-ordinate (SN) method with a fully implicit differencing for time advance. A basic set of neutrino reactions is implemented in the collision terms together with a realistic equation of state. By following the time evolution of neutrino distributions in six dimensions (3 spatial and 3 momentum-space) by the 3D Boltzmann solver, we study the 3D feature of neutrino transfer for given background models of supernova cores in order to understand the explosion mechanism through neutrino heating in multi dimensions.
