We present an improved version of a light curve model that is able to estimate the physical properties of different types of core-collapse supernovae that have double-peaked light curves and do so in a quick and efficient way. The model is based on a two-component configuration consisting of a dense inner region and an extended low-mass envelope. Using this configuration, we estimate the initial parameters of the progenitor by fitting the shape of the quasi-bolometric light curves of 10 SNe…

Supernovae (SNe) are among the most intensely studied objects of modern astrophysics, but due to their complex physical nature, theoretical models are essential to better understand these exploding

A low-luminosity core-collapse supernova very similar to SN 2005cs

We present observations and analysis of PSN J17292918+7542390, a low-luminosity Type II-P supernova (LL SN IIP). The observed sample of such events is still low, and their nature is still under

Theoretical X-Ray Light Curves of Young SNe. II. The Example of SN 2013ej

The X-ray signal from hydrogen-rich supernovae (SNe II) in the first tens to hundreds of days after the shock breakout encodes important information about the circumstellar material (CSM) surrounding

Unifying Type II Supernova Light Curves with Dense Circumstellar Material

A longstanding problem in the study of supernovae (SNe) has been the relationship between the Type IIP and Type IIL subclasses. Whether they come from distinct progenitors or they are from similar

Emission peaks in the light curve of core collapse supernovae by late jets

We build a toy model where the central object, i.e. a newly born neutron star or a black hole, launches jets at late times and show that these jets might account for peaks in the light curve of

Measuring the Progenitor Masses and Dense Circumstellar Material of Type II Supernovae

Recent modeling of hydrogen-rich Type II supernova (SN II) light curves suggests the presence of dense circumstellar material (CSM) surrounding the exploding progenitor stars. This has important

Type IIP Supernova IV. Shock Breakout from Progenitor Stars Modeled with Convective Overshoot and Mass Loss

Red supergiant stars lose a lot of mass in slow winds that forms a circumstellar medium (CSM) around the star. When the star retains a substantial hydrogen envelope at the time of explosion, it

Circumstellar Interaction Models for the Bolometric Light Curve of Type I Superluminous SN 2017egm

We explore simple semi-analytic fits to the bolometric light curve of Gaia17biu/SN 2017egm, the most nearby hydrogen-deficient superluminous supernova (SLSN I) yet discovered. SN 2017egm has a

Observational Signature of Circumstellar Interaction and 56Ni-mixing in the Type II Supernova 2016gfy

The optical and ultraviolet broadband photometric and spectroscopic observations of the Type II supernova (SN) 2016gfy are presented. The V-band light curve (LC) shows a distinct plateau phase with a

The Type II-P Supernova 2017eaw: From Explosion to the Nebular Phase

The nearby SN 2017eaw is a Type II-P (“plateau”) supernova (SN) showing early-time, moderate CSM interaction. We present a comprehensive study of this SN, including the analysis of high-quality
