Abstract

The progenitor evolution and the explosion mechanism of Type Ia supernovae remain unexplained. Nonetheless, substantial progress has been made over the past years with three-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations of different scenarios. Here, we review some recent work pertaining to the leading paradigms of modeling: thermonuclear explosions of white dwarf stars near and below the Chandrasekhar mass limit. We discuss implications of the different explosion channels and their predictions of observables.
