Context. Massive stars end their lives in catastrophic supernova (SN) explosions. Key information on the explosion processes and on the progenitor stars can be extracted from observations of supernova remnants (SNRs), which are the outcome of SNe. Deciphering these observations, however, is challenging because of the complex morphology of SNRs. Aims. We aim to link the dynamical and radiative properties of the remnant of SN 1987A to the geometrical and physical characteristics of the parent… Expand
Magneto-hydrodynamic simulations of young supernova remnants and their energy-conversion phase
Supernova remnants (SNRs) can be rich sources of information on the parent SN explosion. Thus investigating the transition from the phase of SN to that of SNR can be crucial to link these two phasesExpand
Modeling the remnants of core-collapse supernovae from luminous blue variable stars
Context. Luminous blue variable stars (LBVs) are massive evolved stars that suffer sporadic and violent mass-loss events. They have been proposed as the progenitors of some core-collapse supernovaeExpand
Evolutions of Young Type Ia Supernova Remnants with Two Initial Density Profiles in a Turbulent Medium
The expansion index and relative contact discontinuity positions of young type Ia supernova remnants (SNRs) evolving in a turbulent medium are investigated via implementing two-dimensionalExpand
Synthesis of radioactive elements in novae and supernovae and their use as a diagnostic tool
Abstract Novae and supernovae play a key role in many fields of Astrophysics and Cosmology. Despite their importance, an accurate description of which objects explode and why and how they explode isExpand
Spectral Evolution of the X-Ray Remnant of SN 1987A: A High-resolution Chandra HETG Study
Based on observations with the Chandra X-ray Observatory, we present the latest spectral evolution of the X-ray remnant of SN 1987A (SNR 1987A). We present a high-resolution spectroscopic analysisExpand
High-cadence Dispersed Spectral Analysis of Supernova Remnant 1987A
We present an analysis of the dispersed spectral data from 11 epochs (March 2011 to September 2018) of supernova remnant (SNR) 1987A observations performed with Chandra. These observations wereExpand
Properties of gamma-ray decay lines in 3D core-collapse supernova models, with application to SN 1987A and Cas A
Comparison of theoretical line profiles to observations provides important tests for supernova explosion models. We study the shapes of radioactive decay lines predicted by current 3D core-collapseExpand
A Grid of Core-collapse Supernova Remnant Models. I. The Effect of Wind-driven Mass Loss
Massive stars can shed material via steady, line-driven winds, eruptive outflows, or mass transfer onto a binary companion. In the case of single stars, the mass is deposited by the stellar wind intoExpand
Indication of a Pulsar Wind Nebula in the Hard X-Ray Emission from SN 1987A
Since the day of its explosion, SN 1987A (SN87A) was closely monitored with the aim to study its evolution and to detect its central compact relic. The detection of neutrinos from the supernovaExpand
Modeling particle acceleration and non-thermal emission in supernova remnants
Abstract According to the most popular model for the origin of cosmic rays (CRs), supernova remnants (SNRs) are the site where CRs are accelerated. Observations across the electromagnetic spectrumExpand


Supernova 1987A: a Template to Link Supernovae to their Remnants
The emission of supernova remnants reflects the properties of both the progenitor supernovae and the surrounding environment. The complex morphology of the remnants, however, hampers theExpand
