A Novel Multi-Dimensional Boltzmann Neutrino Transport Scheme for Core-Collapse Supernovae

26 Jun 2020 Chan Conrad Monash University Mueller Bernhard Monash University

We introduce a new discrete-ordinate scheme for solving the general relativistic Boltzmann transport equation in the context of core-collapse supernovae. Our algorithm avoids the need to spell out the complicated advection terms in energy and angle that arise when the transport equation is formulated in spherical polar coordinates, in the comoving frame, or in a general relativistic spacetime...
