Massive stars are essential to the evolution of galaxies due to their intense radiation and strong winds as well as their powerful deaths as supernovae. In this study, we aim at understanding the non-monotonic behavior of crucial properties like the final iron-core masses of massive stars in analyzing stellar models with respect to the influence of underlying numerics such as spatial and temporal resolution and study the implications on their final fates in terms of their structural and nucleosynthesis patterns.
