ABSTRACT
This special astrophysics issue presents three case studies on modeling supernovae, which are spectacular stellar explosions. A fourth paper presents a set of parallel analytical tools being developed to analyze the complex results of such simulations. Many astrophysics problems include multiple interacting physical processes and involve disparate length and time scales. Such multiphysics, multiscale applications are challenging to model and require the largest extant computers to simulate.
