A theoretical analysis of the light curves of Type I supernovae is presented. A low-mass helium star (1.5< or approx. =M/sub b//M/sub sun/< or approx. =4), formed by mass transfer in a binary or by extensive mass loss, undergoes core collapse to form a neutron star. The ''reflected'' shock (Van Riper and Arnett) synthesizes and ejects about 0.3 M/sub sun/ of /sup 56/Ni. The low-mass mantle slows the /sup 56/Ni but allows it to escape. The shock does not give a vigorous display in the visual… 
The Mass and Structure of the Remnant of Tycho’s Supernova
A high resolution X-ray image of Tycho’s supernova remnant obtained from the Einstein Observatory reveals three components of X-ray emission that we identify with shocked interstellar material,
WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THE RISING LIGHT CURVES OF RADIOACTIVELY POWERED SUPERNOVAE
The light curve of the explosion of a star with a radius ≾ 10-100 R☉ is powered mostly by radioactive decay. Observationally, such events are dominated by hydrogen-deficient progenitors and
Type II Supernovae
Evidence is briefly reviewed for believing that the core bounce mechanism actually gives rise to Type II supernovae in massive stars. Strongest evidence comes from the historical observation of the
Generalized Semi-analytical Models of Supernova Light Curves
We present generalized supernova (SN) light curve (LC) models for a variety of power inputs including the previously proposed ideas of radioactive decay of {sup 56}Ni and {sup 56}Co and magnetar
SUPERNOVA LIGHT CURVES POWERED BY FALLBACK ACCRETION
Some fraction of the material ejected in a core collapse supernova explosion may remain bound to the compact remnant, and eventually turn around and fall back. We show that the late time
An optimal hydrodynamic model for the normal type IIP supernova 1999em
Context. There is still no consensus about progenitor masses of type IIP supernovae. Aims. We study a normal type IIP SN 1999em in detail and compare it to a peculiar type IIP SN 1987A. Methods. We
Nucleosynthesis in Type I Supernovae: Carbon Deflagration and Helium Detonation Models
The evolution of accreting white dwarfs in close binary systems is studied from the onset of accretion through the thermonuclear explosion. Relatively rapid accretion onto C+O white dwarfs leads to a
Supernova 1987A: neutrino-driven explosions in three dimensions and light curves
The well-studied type IIP SN 1987A, produced by the explosion of a blue supergiant (BSG) star, is a touchstone for massive-star evolution, simulations of neutrino-driven explosions, and modeling of
Theoretical light curves for deflagration models of Type Ia supernova
Aims. We present synthetic bolometric and broad-band UBVRI light curves of SNe Ia for four selected 3D deflagration models of thermonuclear supernovae. Methods. The light curves are computed with the
Rapidly fading supernovae from massive star explosions
Transient surveys have recently discovered a class of supernovae (SNe) with extremely rapidly declining light curves. These events are also often relatively faint, especially compared to Type Ia SNe.
