In this paper, we report observations of a peculiar SN Ia iPTF13asv (a.k.a., SN2013cv) from the onset of the explosion to months after its peak. The early-phase spectra of iPTF13asv show an absence of iron absorption, indicating that synthesized iron elements are confined to low-velocity regions of the ejecta, which, in turn, implies a stratified ejecta structure along the line of sight. Our analysis of iPTF13asv’s light curves and spectra shows that it is an intermediate case between normal… 
Carnegie Supernova Project II: The Slowest Rising Type Ia Supernova LSQ14fmg and Clues to the Origin of Super-Chandrasekhar/03fg-like Events
The Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) LSQ14fmg exhibits exaggerated properties that may help to reveal the origin of the “super-Chandrasekhar” (or 03fg-like) group. The optical spectrum is typical of a
Delayed Circumstellar Interaction for Type Ia SN 2015cp Revealed by an HST Ultraviolet Imaging Survey
The nature and role of the binary companion of carbon–oxygen white dwarf stars that explode as Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are not yet fully understood. Past detections of circumstellar material
Spectral sequences of Type Ia supernovae. I. Connecting normal and sub-luminous SN Ia and the presence of unburned carbon
Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are generally agreed to arise from thermonuclear explosions of carbon–oxygen white dwarfs. The actual path to explosion, however, remains elusive, with numerous plausible
Determining the 56Ni distribution of type Ia supernovae from observations within days of explosion
Recent studies have shown how the distribution of 56Ni within the ejected material of type Ia supernovae can have profound consequences on the observed light curves. Observations at early times can
Photometric and Spectroscopic Properties of Type Ia Supernova 2018oh with Early Excess Emission from the Kepler 2 Observations
Supernova (SN) 2018oh (ASASSN-18bt) is the first spectroscopically confirmed Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) observed in the Kepler field. The Kepler data revealed an excess emission in its early light
Surface Radioactivity or Interactions? Multiple Origins of Early-excess Type Ia Supernovae and Associated Subclasses
Early-phase Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), especially those with luminosity enhancement within the first few days of explosions (“early-excess SNe Ia”), play an irreplaceable role in addressing the
Gravitational Wave in f(R) Gravity: Possible Signature of Sub- and Super-Chandrasekhar Limiting-mass White Dwarfs
After the prediction of many sub- and super-Chandrasekhar (at least a dozen for the latter) limiting-mass white dwarfs (WDs), hence apparently a peculiar class of WDs, from the observations of
Understanding type Ia supernovae through their U-band spectra
Context. Observations of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) can be used to derive accurate cosmological distances through empirical standardization techniques. Despite this success neither the progenitors
Resolving dichotomy in compact objects through continuous gravitational waves observation
More than two dozen soft gamma-ray repeaters (SGRs) and anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) have been detected so far. These are isolated compact objects. Many of them are either found to be associated
