Usual supernova remnants have either ionizing plasma or plasma in collisional ionization equilibrium, i.e., the ionization temperature is lower than or equal to the electron temperature. However, the existence of recombining supernova remnants, i.e., supernova remnants with ionization temperature higher than the electron temperature, has been recently confirmed. One suggested way to have recombining plasma in a supernova remnant is to have a dense circumstellar medium at the time of the… Expand

Supernova Remnants as Clues to Their Progenitors
Supernovae shape the interstellar medium, chemically enrich their host galaxies, and generate powerful interstellar shocks that drive future generations of star formation. The shock produced by aExpand
Numerical Simulations of Supernova Remnant Evolution in a Cloudy Interstellar Medium
The mixed morphology class of supernova remnants has centrally peaked X-ray emission along with a shell-like morphology in radio emission. White & Long proposed that these remnants are evolving in aExpand
The Progenitor of SN 2011ja: Clues from Circumstellar Interaction
Massive stars, possibly red supergiants, which retain extended hydrogen envelopes until core collapse, produce Type II plateau (IIP) supernovae. The ejecta from these explosions shocks theExpand
Supernova Remnants Interacting with Molecular Clouds: X-Ray and Gamma-Ray Signatures
The giant molecular clouds (MCs) found in the Milky Way and similar galaxies play a crucial role in the evolution of these systems. The supernova explosions that mark the death of massive stars inExpand
The origin of recombining plasma and the detection of the Fe-K line in the supernova remnant W 28
Overionized recombining plasmas (RPs) have been discovered from a dozen of mixed- morphology (MM) supernova remnants (SNRs). However their formation process is still under debate. As pointed out byExpand
UNRAVELING THE ORIGIN OF OVERIONIZED PLASMA IN THE GALACTIC SUPERNOVA REMNANT W49B
Recent observations have shown several supernova remnants (SNRs) have overionized plasmas, where ions are stripped of more electrons than they would be if in equilibrium with the electronExpand

Abstract The fast shocks that characterize supernova remnants heat circumstellar and ejecta material to extremely high temperatures, resulting in significant X-ray emission. The X-ray spectrum fromExpand
Evidence for Rapid Adiabatic Cooling as an Origin of the Recombining Plasma in the Supernova Remnant W49B Revealed by NuSTAR Observations
X-ray observations of supernova remnants (SNRs) in the last decade have shown that the presence of recombining plasmas is somewhat common in a certain type of object. The SNR W49B is the youngest,Expand
Recombining Plasma and Hard X-Ray Filament in the Mixed-Morphology Supernova Remnant W 44
We report on new features of the typical mixed-morphology supernova remnant W 44. In X-ray spectra obtained with Suzaku, radiative recombination continua of highly ionized atoms were detected for theExpand
Are Models for Core-Collapse Supernova Progenitors Consistent with the Properties of Supernova Remnants?
The recent discovery that the Fe-K line luminosities and energy centroids observed in nearby SNRs are a strong discriminant of both progenitor type and circumstellar environment has implications forExpand

Evolution of Supernova Remnants Expanding out of the Dense Circumstellar Matter into the Rarefied Interstellar Medium
We carry out 3D-hydrodynamical calculations for the interaction of expanding supernova ejecta with the dense circumstellar matter (CSM) and the rarefied interstellar medium (ISM) outside. The CSM isExpand

Abstract We report the discovery of recombining plasmas in three supernova remnants (SNRs) with the Suzaku X-ray astronomy satellite. During SNR’s evolution, the expanding supernova ejecta and theExpand
Unveiling the spatial structure of the overionized plasma in the supernova remnant W49B
W49B is a mixed-morphology supernova remnant with thermal X-ray emission dominated by the ejecta. In this remnant, the presence of overionized plasma has been directly established, with informationExpand
Hydrogen-poor superluminous stellar explosions
TLDR
Observations of a class of luminous supernovae whose properties cannot be explained by any of the following processes: radioactive decay of freshly synthesized elements, explosion shock in the envelope of a supergiant star, and interaction between the debris and slowly moving, hydrogen-rich circumstellar material.
