Arnett, W.D., 1968: On supernova hydrodynamics. Astrophys. J., 153, 341-348, doi:10.1086/149669.

Recently, Colgate (1968) has criticized an investigation of gravitational collapse of non-rotating massive stars by the author (Arnett 1967) in which energy transport by electron-type neutrinos and antineutrinos was found to be much less efficient in massive stars (Mcore ≳ 8 M) than estimated by Colgate and White (1966; hereinafter referred to as "CW"). Mathematical models of these stars would not explode by this mechanism. The purpose of this Note is to reply to Colgate's criticisms and point out some weaknesses in the analysis given in CW.
