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 supernovae (SNe), but this idea is still debated because of a lack of strong evidence. As supernova remnants (SNRs) can carry in their morphology the fingerprints of the progenitor stars as well as of the inhomogeneous circumstellar medium (CSM) sculpted by the progenitors, the study of SNRs from LBVs could…

High energy particles from young supernovae: gamma-ray and neutrino connections
. Young core-collapse supernovae (YSNe) are factories of high-energy neutrinos and gamma-rays as the shock accelerated protons efficiently interact with the protons in the dense circumstellar medium.


On luminous blue variables as the progenitors of core-collapse supernovae, especially Type IIn supernovae
Luminous blue variable (LBV) stars are very massive, luminous, unstable stars that suffer frequent eruptions. In the last few years, these stars have been proposed as the direct progenitors of some
Progenitors of Core-Collapse Supernovae
Knowledge of the progenitors of core-collapse supernovae is a fundamental component in understanding the explosions. The recent progress in finding such stars is reviewed. The minimum initial mass
Episodic modulations in supernova radio light curves from luminous blue variable supernova progenitor models
Context. Ideally, one would like to know which type of core-collapse supernovae (SNe) is produced by different progenitors and what channels of stellar evolution lead to these progenitors. These
Massive star evolution: luminous blue variables as unexpected supernova progenitors
Stars more massive than about 8 Mend their lives as a supernova (SN), an event of fundamental importance Universe-wide. Theoretically, these stars have been expected to be either at the red
A massive hypergiant star as the progenitor of the supernova SN 2005gl
It is reported that the previously proposed object was indeed the progenitor star of SN 2005gl, likely a luminous blue variable that standard stellar evolution predicts should not have exploded in that state.
Carnegie Supernova Project: Observations of Type IIn supernovae ⋆
Supernovae (SNe) are the final stage in the life of massive stars. Their explosion unbinds the progenitor star revealing its inner layers. The SN ejecta interact with the circumstellar material
Hydrodynamic simulations unravel the progenitor-supernova-remnant connection in SN 1987A
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
On the Progenitor of SN 2005gl and the Nature of Type IIn Supernovae
We present a study of the Type IIn supernova (SN) 2005gl, in the relatively nearby (d ≈ 66 Mpc) galaxy NGC 266. Photometry and spectroscopy of the SN indicate that it is a typical member of its
Interacting Supernovae: Types IIn and Ibn
Supernovae (SNe) that show evidence of strong shock interaction between their ejecta and pre-existing, slower circumstellar material (CSM) constitute an interesting, diverse, and still poorly
The emission of supernova remnants (SNRs) reflects the properties of both the progenitor supernovae (SNe) and the surrounding environment. The complex morphology of the remnants, however, hampers the
