ABSTRACT
We compare a suite of 3D explosion calculations and stellar models incor-
porating advanced physics with observational constraints on the progenitor of
Cassiopeia A. We consider binary and single stars from 16 to 40 M with a range
of explosion energies and geometries. The parameter space allowed by observa-
tions of nitrogen rich high velocity ejecta, ejecta mass, compact remnant mass,
