In this paper, we report on our analysis using Hubble Space Telescope astrometry and Keck-I HIRES spectroscopy of the central six stars of Tycho's supernova remnant (SN 1572). With these data, we measured the proper motions, radial velocities, rotational velocities, and chemical abundances of these objects. Regarding the chemical abundances, we do not confirm the unusually high [Ni/Fe] ratio previously reported for Tycho-G. Rather, we find that for all metrics in all stars, none exhibit the… 
Tycho's Supernova: The View from Gaia
SN 1572 (Tycho Brahe’s supernova) clearly belongs to the Ia (thermonuclear) type. It was produced by the explosion of a white dwarf (WD) in a binary system. Its remnant has been the first of this
Improved Hubble Space Telescope Proper Motions for Tycho-G and Other Stars in the Remnant of Tycho's Supernova 1572
With archival and new Hubble Space Telescope observations we have refined the space-velocity measurements of the stars in the central region of the remnant of Tycho’s supernova (SN) 1572, one of the
NEWLY DETERMINED EXPLOSION CENTER OF TYCHO’S SUPERNOVA AND THE IMPLICATIONS FOR PROPOSED EX-COMPANION STARS OF THE PROGENITOR
“Star G,” near the center of the supernova remnant of Tycho’s SN 1572, has been claimed to be the ex-companion star of the exploding white dwarf, thus pointing to the progenitor being like a
No Surviving Companion in Kepler's Supernova
We have surveyed Kepler’s supernova remnant in search of the companion star of the explosion. We have gone as deep as 2.6 L⊙ in all stars within 20% of the radius of the remnant. We use FLAMES at the
A RECONNAISSANCE OF THE POSSIBLE DONOR STARS TO THE KEPLER SUPERNOVA
The identity of Type Ia supernova progenitors remains a mystery, with various lines of evidence pointing toward either accretion from a nondegenerate companion or the rapid merger of two degenerate
Swift/BAT detection of hard X-rays from Tycho's Supernova Remnant: Evidence for Titanium-44
We report Swift/Burst Alert Telescope survey observations of the Tycho's supernova remnant, performed over a period of 104 months since the mission's launch. The remnant is detected with high
No hot and luminous progenitor for Tycho’s supernova
Type Ia supernovae have proven vital to our understanding of cosmology, both as standard candles and for their role in galactic chemical evolution; however, their origin remains uncertain. The
The Three-dimensional Expansion of the Ejecta from Tycho's Supernova Remnant
We present the first 3D measurements of the velocity of various ejecta knots in Tycho’s supernova remnant, known to result from a Type Ia explosion. Chandra X-ray observations over a 12 yr baseline
Spatially Resolved RGS Analysis of Kepler’s Supernova Remnant
The distribution and kinematics of the circumstellar medium (CSM) around a supernova remnant (SNR) tell us useful information about the explosion of its natal supernova (SN). Kepler's SNR, the
THE ABSENCE OF EX-COMPANIONS IN TYPE Ia SUPERNOVA REMNANTS
Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) play important roles in our study of the expansion and acceleration of the universe, but because we do not know the exact nature or natures of the progenitors, there is a

SUBARU HIGH-RESOLUTION SPECTROSCOPY OF STAR G IN THE TYCHO SUPERNOVA REMNANT
It is widely believed that Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) originate in binary systems where a white dwarf accretes material from a companion star until its mass approaches the Chandrasekhar mass and
THE CHEMICAL ABUNDANCES OF TYCHO G IN SUPERNOVA REMNANT 1572
We present an analysis of the chemical abundances of the star Tycho G in the direction of the remnant of supernova (SN) 1572, based on Keck high-resolution optical spectra. The stellar parameters of
The binary progenitor of Tycho Brahe's 1572 supernova
TLDR
A survey of the central region of Tycho's supernova remnant, around the position of the explosion, finds a type G0–G2 star, similar to the authors' Sun in surface temperature and luminosity (but lower surface gravity), which appears to be the surviving companion of the supernova.
