Nuclear Physics Seminar in 435 Physics
Speaker: Chen Hou, University of Minnesota
Subject: The ODT Model And Its Applications On PRE bursts

A Type-I X-ray burst is the thermonuclear shell flash that happens on the surface of a neutron star. Studies on these bursts are of importance for understanding neutron stars in binary systems, nuclear reaction networks and dense matter at low temperature. I will discuss a subset of X-ray bursts that is powerful to lift up the photosphere with the simulations based on a new 1D turbulence model. The model is different in a sense that the turbulence is generated by a stochastic process and the stability of the system. The results will be compared with KEPLER's.
