This website is a repository of the results from our numerical simulations on supernovae. For each paper, we include the abstract and the model results that were obtained and discussed (plots, synthetic spectra, movies for hydrodynamical simulations etc.).

This research has benefited from funding by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche from 2011 to 2016, under grant number ANR-2011-Blanc-SIMI-5-6-007-01.
