Hugoniot adiabates for the waves of combustion in degenerate matter of supernovae

  • A. M. Khokhlov


Results of computations of equilibrium parameters of steady detonation, deflagration and spontaneous flame propagation both in degenerate12C+16O mixtures and helium4He are presented in a wide density range from 106 to 5×109 g cm−3. The limiting regimes of supersonic and subsonic burning are discussed. The maximum velocity of deflagration is obtained as a function of initial density of matter.
