in front of an expert audience, including Paul Woodward, who developed the Piecewise Parabolic Method (PPM) used in most astrophysical multi-dimensional hydrodynamics codes. Raphael's presentation focused on 3D hydrodynamics simulations of convection (WP2) during carbon burning and the implications for convection theory in stellar evolution modelling (WP4, see his presentation slides for more details).

Later on, Philipp Edelmann (HITS, Heidelberg) presented the SHYNE project work on "Dynamical shear instabilities in massive stars" (WP2). On Tuesday, Thomas Rauscher (Basel, CH; University of Hertfordshire, UK) presented the results of our sensitivity studies for the weak s and gamma-process (WP1) in his talk entitled: "Theory uncertainties in modelling nucleosynthesis beyond Fe". In the next session, Alexandra Kozyreva presented the results of light curve modelling for pair-instability supernovae (WP5, Fast evolving pair-instability supernovae).
