Through the creation of spectral energy distributions for well-observed literature core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe), we present corrections to transform optical light curves to full bolometric light curves. These corrections take the form of parabolic fits to optical colours, with B − I and g − r presented as exemplary fits, while parameters for fits to other colours are also given. We find evolution of the corrections with colour to be extremely homogeneous across CCSNe of all types in the…

Bolometric light curves and explosion parameters of 38 stripped-envelope core-collapse supernovae

Literature data are collated for 38 stripped-envelope core-collapse supernovae (SE SNe; i.e. SNe IIb, Ib, Ic and Ic-BL) that have good light curve coverage in more than one optical band. Using

The bolometric light curves and physical parameters of stripped-envelope supernovae

The optical and optical/near-infrared pseudobolometric light curves of 84 stripped-envelope supernovae (SNe) are constructed using a consistent method and a standard cosmology. The light curves are

A GLOBAL MODEL OF THE LIGHT CURVES AND EXPANSION VELOCITIES OF TYPE II-PLATEAU SUPERNOVAE

We present a new self-consistent and versatile method that derives photospheric radius and temperature variations of Type II-Plateau supernovae based on their expansion velocities and photometric

Recombination Effects on Supernova Light Curves

The light curves of Type II supernovae (SNe II) are believed to be highly affected by recombination of hydrogen that takes place in their envelopes. In this work, we analytically investigate the

In this work we present a uniform analysis of the temperature evolution and bolometric luminosity of a sample of 29 type-II supernovae (SNe), by fitting a black body model to their multi-band

The Carnegie Supernova Project I: analysis of stripped-envelope supernova light curves

Stripped-envelope (SE) supernovae (SNe) include H-poor (Type IIb), H-free (Type Ib) and He-free (Type Ic) events thought to be associated with the deaths of massive stars. The exact nature of their

Type IIP Supernovae

In this chapter concerns supernovae of Type IIP (SN IIP), the spectra of which contain conspicuous lines of hydrogen at all epochs. After a brief, bright, and as-yet-unobserved phase of shock

Analysis of late-time light curves of Type IIb, Ib and Ic supernovae

The shape of the light curve peak of radioactive--powered core--collapse "stripped--envelope" supernovae constrains the ejecta mass, nickel mass, and kinetic energy by the brightness and diffusion

We investigate the effects of winds on the observational properties of Type Ib and Ic supernova (SN Ib/Ic) progenitors using spectral models constructed with the non-LTE stellar atmospheric code

The luminous late-time emission of the type-Ic supernova iPTF15dtg – evidence for powering from a magnetar?

Context. The transient iPTF15dtg is a type-Ic supernova (SN) showing a broad light curve around maximum light, consistent with massive ejecta if we assume a radioactive-powering scenario. Aims. We
