Fig. 2.


Initial rotation laws and density distributions of all our rapidly rotating progenitor models. The lower three panels display cross-sections of the WDs with the rotational axis in z-direction. The density is color coded. Solid contours mark density levels of ρ = 105 and 107 g cm−3, corresponding to the transition densities between the main burning stages (producing iron group and intermediate mass elements, respectively, or ceasing burning) in our detonation yield tables. For comparison, the dotted contours at ρ = 1.047 × 107 and 5.248 × 107 g cm−3 show the transition densities assumed in the earlier study by Pfannes et al. (2010a).
