Supernovae in the universe

Abstract

In this article, I review the current understanding of the mechanism of core-collapse supernovae, one of the most energetic events in the present universe. I will not only summarize the neutrino-heating mechanism, the standard paradigm at present, but also pay special attention to the recent topics such as the standing accretion shock instability and the acoustic revival scenario proposed by Burrows very recently.
