The Gravitational-Wave Signature of Core-Collapse Supernovae: New Results from Simulations in 3+1 General Relativity
Christian Ott
Research Assistant, Max Planck Institut fur Gravitationsphysik
Johnston Hall 338
June 15, 2006 - 12:15 pm
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.
