Abstract: We present results from the first generation of multi-dimensional general relativistic neutrino hydrodynamics simulations of core-collapse supernovae. A comparison with models computed using either the purely Newtonian approximation or the “effective gravitational potential” approach reveals appreciable quantitative differences in the heating conditions and the gravitational wave spectra. Our results underscore the important role of general relativity in the supernova problem (which appears to be on par with other important factors such as the dimensionality and the equation of state) both for our understanding of the explosion dynamics as well as for predictions of observable signatures.
