Core-collapse supernovae are the the luminous explosions following the death of massive stars. They are a source of chemical elements and they are the birthplace of Stellar-mass black holes, neutron stars, pulsars, and magnetars. Core-collapse supernovae are one of the most important open questions in astrophysics: Despite their importance, the mechanisms that drives the core-collapse supernova explosion is not yet fully understood. Here, we propose a study of the evolution of magnetic fields and their effects on the explosion in core-collapse supernovae. We proposed to utilize the ELEPHANT code to perform an array of three-dimensional supernova simulations with variations in the initial rotation profile, the size of the initial magnetic field strength, and progenitor mass.
