SNEC -- The SuperNova Explosion Code

Submitted by cott on Fri, 07/25/2014 - 04:20

Folks at Caltech have been working on a new open-source 1D Lagragian radiation-hydrodynamics for supernova explosions called SNEC -- The SuperNova Explosion Code. We are not quite ready to release the full code yet, but its hydro portion is already available on and has been used in Piro & Morozova, Transparent Helium in Stripped Envelope Supernovae, submitted to ApJL, arXiv:1407.5992.
