Light curves for lop-sided SNe Ia
Stuart Sim (MPA, Garching)

Stuart Sim, Daniel Sauer, Friedrich Roepke, Wolfgang Hillebrandt:

We present results from a study of the effects of aspherical distributionsof the products of nuclear burning on bolometric light curves of SNe Ia.First, we consider both a grid of artificial toy models which explore therange of possible effects and results from one 3D hydrodynamic simulation.
We find that the viewing angle dependency introduced in such models mayhave significant ramifications for the interpretation of currentobservations.
