Abstract

We discuss the strategy followed by the Center for Astrophysical Thermonuclear Flashes in validating codes designed for thermonuclear burning on the surfaces or the interior of evolved compact stars. As an illustration, we discuss in some detail our progress in simulating Rayleigh-Taylor mixing relevant to Type la supernovae.
