Expel of Gravitationally Bound Mass by Fast Jets from Compact Objects

Speaker:Oded Papish
Location:Lidow 620
Remark:A PhD talk
Abstract:We present a new model by which narrow jets launched by the newly formed neutron star or black hole at the center of a core collapse supernova lead to the supernova explosion. We show that under a wide range of parameters the fast narrow jets deposit their energy inside the star via shock waves, and form two hot bubbles that eventually lead to the explosion of the star. The conditions for the jets to explode the star and the physics of the explosion are presented.
