"Neutrino propagation in core-collapse supernovae"

Hendrik Vogel (Max Planck für Physik, Munich)

Supernovae are fascinating astrophysical objects and for their description various physical disciplines are required. One of these is the neutrino transport close to the dense center of a core-collapse supernova. The exceptional dense medium changes the propagation of neutrinos, e.g. their flavor oscillations. Also more recent concepts like helicity and pair correlations might become important. I present an introduction to supernovae and discuss the importance of neutrino propagation on core-collapse supernovae.
