Title: Diagnostics of the Supernova Engine

Abstract

The standard engine behind core-collapse supernovae is continuously evolving with increasingly detailed models. At this time, most simulations focus on an engine invoking turbulence above the proto-neutron star, sometimes termed the “convection-enhanced” engine. Finally, we review this engine and why it has become the standard for normal supernovae, focusing on a wide set of observations that provide insight into the supernova engine.
