Presentation #127.03 in the session Supernovae and Black Holes.
Type Ia supernova events (SNe Ia) are highly luminous explosions used as standardizable candles that play a key role in measuring the equation of state of dark energy and the cosmological expansion of our universe. Despite their significance in cosmology and astrophysics, a complete understanding of the explosion physics that triggers these thermonuclear explosions has remained elusive until now. In this study, we analyze the turbulence statistics of thermonuclear flames in full 3D simulations of near-Chandrasekhar white dwarfs, varying the central density and ignition offset. Additionally, we discuss the implications of these measurements for the delay time between central ignition and detonation, as well as the general SNe Ia progenitor problem.
