I use photometry and spectroscopy data for 24 Type II plateau supernovae to examine their observed and physical properties. This dataset shows that these objects encompass a wide range in their observed properties (plateau luminosities, tail luminosities, and expansion velocities) and their physical parameters (explosion energies, ejected masses, initial radii, and 56Ni yields). Several regularities emerge within this diversity, which reveal (1) a continuum in the properties of Type II plateau… Expand

Peculiar, low-luminosity Type II supernovae: low-energy explosions in massive progenitors?
A number of supernovae, classified as Type II, show remarkably peculiar properties such as an extremely low expansion velocity and an extraordinarily small amount of 5 6 Ni in the ejecta. We presentExpand
Hydrodynamical models of type II supernovae
A series of hydrodynamical models of type-II supernova outbursts (SNII) has been calculated. Approximate relations connecting the total outburst energy ε, the mass of envelope ejectedM, theExpand
Radio emission from supernovae and gamma-ray bursters
▪ Abstract Study of radio supernovae over the past 20 years includes two dozen detected objects and more than 100 upper limits. From this work it is possible to identify classes of radio properties,Expand
Light curves and H$\alpha$ luminosities as indicators of $\mathsf{^{56}}$Ni mass in type IIP supernovae
The possibility is investigated that the Hit luminosity at the nebular epoch may be an additional indicator of 5 6 Ni mass in type II supernovae with plateau (SNe IIP), on the basis of availableExpand
The evolution of massive stars including mass loss - Presupernova models and explosion
The evolution of massive stars of 35, 40, 60, and 85 solar masses is followed through all stages of nuclear burning to the point of Fe core collapse. Critical nuclear reaction and mass-loss rates areExpand
