Why Stars Explode

(An Integral Condition for Core-Collapse Supernova Explosions)

http://arxiv.org/abs/1507.08314 This may be the most important paper of my life...or it could be completely wrong. The truth probably lies somewhere in between. In this paper, Joshua Dolence and I present a theory which we hope sheds light on which stars explode and form neutron stars and which stars collapse and form black holes.
