Monte Carlo calculation of the surface tension for two and threedimensional latticegas models
It is suggested that the interface free energy between bulk phases with a macroscopically flat interface can be estimated from the variation of certain probability distribution functions of finite blocks with block size. For a liquidgas system the probability distribution of the density would have to be used. The method is particularly suitable for the critical region where other methods are hard to apply. As a test case, the twodimensional latticegas model is treated and it is shown that already, from rather small blocks, one obtains results consistent with the exact soluion of Onsager for the surface tension, by performingmore » 
Numerical transfermatrix study of surfacetension anisotropy in Ising models on square and cubic lattices
We compute by numerical transfermatrix methods the surface free energy [tau]([ital T]), the surface stiffness coefficient [kappa]([ital T]), and the step free energy [ital s]([ital T]) for Ising ferromagnets with ([infinity][times][ital L]) squarelattice and ([infinity][times][ital L][times][ital M]) cubiclattice geometries, into which an interface is introduced by imposing antiperiodic or plus/minus boundary conditions in one transverse direction. These quantities occur in expansions of the angledependent surface tension for either rough or smooth interfaces. The finitesize scaling behavior of the interfacial correlation length provides the means of investigating [tau]([ital T]), [kappa]([ital T]), and [ital s]([ital T]). The resulting transfermatrix estimates are fullymore » 
Differential Sensitivity Theory applied to the MESA2D code for multimaterial problems
The technique called Differential Sensitivity Theory (DST) is extended to the multicomponent system of equations solved by the MESA2D hydrocode. DST uses adjoint techniques to determine exact sensitivity derivatives, i.e., if R is a calculation result of interest (response R) and {alpha}{sub i} is a calculation input (parameter {alpha}{sub i}), then {partial_derivative}R/{partial_derivative}{alpha}{sub i} is defined as the sensitivity. The advantage of using DST is that for an nparameter problem {ital all} n sensitivities can be obtained by integrating the solutions from only {ital two} calculations, a MESA calculation and its corresponding adjoint calculation using an Adjoint Continuum Mechanics (ACM) code.more » 
A NEW MULTIDIMENSIONAL GENERAL RELATIVISTIC NEUTRINO HYDRODYNAMICS CODE FOR CORECOLLAPSE SUPERNOVAE. II. RELATIVISTIC EXPLOSION MODELS OF CORECOLLAPSE SUPERNOVAE
We present the first twodimensional general relativistic (GR) simulations of stellar core collapse and explosion with the COCONUT hydrodynamics code in combination with the VERTEX solver for energydependent, threeflavor neutrino transport, using the extended conformal flatness condition for approximating the spacetime metric and a raybyrayplus ansatz to tackle the multidimensionality of the transport. For both of the investigated 11.2 and 15 M{sub Sun} progenitors we obtain successful, though seemingly marginal, neutrinodriven supernova explosions. This outcome and the time evolution of the models basically agree with results previously obtained with the PROMETHEUS hydro solver including an approximative treatment of relativistic effectsmore »
