Ott will present new results for the gravitational wave signature of the collapse, bounce and early postbounce phases of core-collapse supernovae based on calculations in 3+1 general relativity that employ a finite-temperature nuclear equation of state and realistic supernova progenitor models.
Christian David Ott received his Diploma in Physics from the University of Heidelberg in 2003 and is currently finishing his Ph.D. in Physics at the Universitat Potsdam/Max-Planck-Institut fur Gravitationsphysik. He is currently a full-time research assistant at the Albert-Einstein-Institute. In 1999-2003 Ott served as the Unix Systems Administrator in the Office of the Dean of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Heidelberg.
