Hydrodynamic Evolution of Supernovae Impacting White Dwarf Donors

The D6 scenario suggests that the white dwarf donor interacts significantly with the supernova ejecta, as a way to explain the luminosity and size of candidate remnant objects. As this is clearly a dynamical interaction, we use the self-gravity and newly developed EOS capabilities of Athena++ to explicitly evolve the hydrodynamical phase of the ejecta-donor interaction, with particular attention dedicated to the shock that travels through the donor and the entropy deposited in its interior.
