The Explosion Mechanism of Core-Collapse Supernovae and Its Observational Signatures

The book chapter in “Reviews in Frontiers of Modern Astrophysics From Space Debris to Cosmology” has now been published. In addition to basic overview of core-collapse supernova explosion mechanism, the writing includes side-by-side comparisons of predictions of explosion models (explodes yes/no, explosion energy, nickel mass, compact remnant mass) and observational inferences (explosion energy, nickel mass, neutron star mass).
