Despite growing computational power, modern simulations of core-collapse supernovae are not fully including all physical aspects. Instead, approximations are done. The feedback of nuclear energy generation due to nuclear reactions is such an approximation and currently there is no simulation that fully includes that effect. We investigated the accuracy of different reduced nuclear reaction networks and developed a new in situ reaction network.
