I study Type-Ia supernovae, which are the explosions of carbon-oxygen white dwarfs due to thermonuclear runaways, by running computer simulations with Professor Ken’ichi Nomoto. We are interested in understanding the relations among various parameters of Type-Ia supernovae and their influences to the galactic chemical evolution. In particular, we want to derive constraints on the theoretical explosion mechanisms from observational data, from which we can refine our usage of Type-Ia supernovae in the precision measurement of dark energy.
