    Standing accretion shock instability (SASI) is one of the candidates to solve the mystery of why we cannot reproduce the explosion with the present core-collapse supernova models. We have studied this phenomenon with including neutrino heating and realistic EOS and found that SASI may enhance neutrino heating. Although g-mode of proto-neutron star may enhance the SASI growth, the simulations just including the pressure perturbation as a mimic of g-mode induced sound wave reveal no significant effect on the shock dynamics. Moreover, we discuss the required conditions toward the possible laboratory experiment of SASI.
