Pre-supernovae models and rotation impact on core-collapse
I'm currently working on the Geneva Stellar Evolution code. My main goal is to take it up to Pre-Supernovae phase introducing new equations of state and acceleration terms. The Geneva code is well-known for the way rotation is treated, and it would add a new view upon pre-supernovae phase and the rotation impact on core-collapse. Then, the goal will be to compute explosive nucleosynthesis and associated supernovae light curves in order to compare it to observations. Moreover, we will be able to give all the quantities and derivatives just before the core-collapse to contrain 3D simulations, and so find out more about relationships between progenitors and supernovae.
