  • PS15dpn is a luminous rapidly rising Type Ibn supernova (SN) discovered by Pan-STARRS1 (PS1). Previous study shown that the bolometric light curve (LC) cannot be explained by the $^{56}$Ni cascade decay model. In this paper, we employ some alternative models, i.e., the magnetar model, and the $^{56}$Ni plus magnetar model, the ejecta-circumstellar medium (CSM) model (the CSI model), and the CSI plus $^{56}$Ni model, to fit the bolometric LC of PS15dpn. We found that all these models can… CONTINUE READING
