Novae Modelling Achievements and Challenges
Racah Institute of Physics, The Hebrew
University, Jerusalem, Israel
The detailed modelling of thermonuclear runaways in novae is a great challenge. This paper focuses on issues where the coupling between the hydrodynamic and the nuclear aspects is critical. The mixing of heavy elements at the bottom of the accreted envelope is found to be the most significant problem. Other issues related to the modelling of the mixing at the outer parts of the convective zone and to the details of the early light curve are also discussed.
