Abstract: By recent spherical calculations, rotation of progenitor WDs has been suggested to be differential and a possible source of the diversity of the peak luminosity of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia). We calculate the structure of rotating WDs with an axisymmetric hydrostatic code and investigate the mass diversity induced by the rotation. Differential rotation cause significant diversity in mass and it might be the possible source of the intrinsic diversity of the luminosity of SNe Ia.
