Recovery of the supernova (SN) delay-time distribution (DTD) – the SN rate versus time that would follow a hypothetical brief burst of star formation – can shed light on SN progenitors and physics, as well as on the time-scales of chemical enrichment. Previous attempts to reconstruct the DTD have been based either on comparison of mean SN rates versus redshift to cosmic star-formation history (SFH), or on the comparison of SN rates among galaxies with different mean ages. Here, we present an… Expand
