The Role of Inhomogeneities in Supernova Shock Breakout EmissionThe breakout of a supernova blast wave from its progenitor star provides strong constraints on the star and its immediate surroundings. These surroundings are shaped by mass loss from the star and can include a wide variety of inhomogeneities. Here we present results of multidimensional radiation-hydrodynamics calculations of the interactions of the supernova blast wave with inhomogeneities in the immediate surroundings of a massive Wolf-Rayet star, calculating the effect these interactions have on the shock breakout signal from supernovae.
