Figure 26: The density profile in the polar direction every 0.4 s as a function of radius. (a), (b) and (c) correspond to 0.4, 0.8 and 2.8 s, respectively. The horizontal blue lines show approximately density of the H-resonance for different neutrino energies which are 5 (above) and 60 MeV (below), respectively. The green line is an original density profile for 2.0 s. Same as the left panel, but for 1.2 s (d), 2.0 s (e), and 3.2 s (f), respectively. Note that a sharpness of the shock along the polar direction is modified from the one in the MHD simulations (green line showing an original density profile for 2.0 s), which is made to be inevitably blunt due to the employed numerical scheme using an artificial viscosity to capture shocks (taken from [305]).
