RADIATIVE TRANSFER SIMULATIONS OF NEUTRON STAR MERGER EJECTA
Mergers of binary neutron stars (NSs) are among the most promising gravitational wave (GW) sources. Next generation GW detectors are expected to detect signals from NS mergers within about 200 Mpc.Expand
A neutron-star-driven X-ray flash associated with supernova SN 2006aj
TLDR
The results indicate that the supernova–GRB connection extends to a much broader range of stellar masses than previously thought, possibly involving different physical mechanisms: a ‘collapsar’ for the more massive stars collapsing to a black hole, and magnetic activity of the nascent neutron star for the less massive stars.

Modeling GW170817 based on numerical relativity and its implications
Gravitational-wave observation together with a large number of electromagnetic observations shows that the source of the latest gravitational-wave event, GW170817, detected primarily by advancedExpand
PROGENITOR MODELS OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC TRANSIENT ASSOCIATED WITH THE SHORT GAMMA RAY BURST 130603B
An electromagnetic transient powered by the radioactive decay of r-process elements, a so-called kilonova/macronova, is one of the possible observable consequences of compact binary mergers includingExpand
Kilonova from post-merger ejecta as an optical and near-infrared counterpart of GW170817
Recent detection of gravitational waves from a neutron star (NS) merger event GW170817 and identification of an electromagnetic counterpart provide a unique opportunity to study the physicalExpand
The evolution of the peculiar type Ia supernova SN 2005hk over 400 days
UBVRI photometryandmedium-resolution opticalspectroscopyof thepeculiarTypeIasupernova SN2005hkare presentedandanalyzed,coveringthepremaximum phase toaround400daysafter explosion.Thesupernova isfoundExpand
Radioactive decay products in neutron star merger ejecta: heating efficiency and γ-ray emission
The radioactive decay of the freshly synthesized r-process nuclei ejected in compact binary mergers powers optical/infrared macronovae (kilonovae) that follow these events. The light curves dependExpand
Models of Kilonova/macronova emission from black hole-neutron star mergers
Black hole-neutron star mergers are among the promising gravitational-wave sources for ground-based detectors, and gravitational waves from black hole-neutron star mergers are expected to be detectedExpand
The fast, luminous ultraviolet transient AT2018cow: extreme supernova, or disruption of a star by an intermediate-mass black hole?
Wide-field optical surveys have begun to uncover large samples of fast (t_rise 10 days. The spectrum remains extremely hot throughout its evolution, and the photospheric radius contracts with timeExpand
Properties of Kilonovae from Dynamical and Post-merger Ejecta of Neutron Star Mergers
Ejected material from neutron star mergers give rise to electromagnetic emission powered by radioactive decays of r-process nuclei, which is so called kilonova or macronova. While properties of theExpand
