Supernova Light Curves Approximation based on Neural Network Models
Photometric data-driven classification of supernovae becomes a challenge due to the appearance of real-time processing of big data in astronomy. Recent studies have demonstrated the superior quality


STACCATO: a novel solution to supernova photometric classification with biased training sets
A novel method, called STACCATO (SynThetically Augmented Light Curve ClassificATiOn') that synthetically augments a biased training set by generating additional training data from the fitted GPs, and increases performance, as measured by the area under the Receiver Operating Characteristic curve (AUC).
Photometric Supernova Classification With Machine Learning
A multi-faceted classification pipeline, combining existing and new approaches, finds that a representative training set is essential for good classification, whatever the feature set or algorithm, with implications for spectroscopic follow-up.
On the cosmological performance of photometrically classified supernovae with machine learning
This paper investigates the performance of machine learning (ML) classification on the final cosmological constraints using simulated lightcurves from The Supernova Photometric Classification Challenge, released in 2010, and proposes a threshold selection method to construct the final catalogs.
Supernova Photometric Classification Pipelines Trained on Spectroscopically Classified Supernovae from the Pan-STARRS1 Medium-deep Survey
This study develops a range of light curve classification pipelines trained on 518 spectroscopically-classified SNe from the Pan-STARRS1 Medium-Deep Survey, and presents a new parametric analytical model that can accommodate a broad range of SN light curve morphologies, including those with a plateau.
Supernova Photometric Classification Challenge
We have publicly released a blinded mix of simulated SNe, with types (Ia, Ib, Ic, II) selected in proportion to their expected rate. The simulation is realized in the griz filters of the Dark Energy
SALT2: using distant supernovae to improve the use of type Ia supernovae as distance indicators
We present an empirical model of Type Ia supernovae spectro-photometric evolution with time. The model is built using a large data set including light-curves and spectra of both nearby and distant
SuperRAENN: A Semisupervised Supernova Photometric Classification Pipeline Trained on Pan-STARRS1 Medium-Deep Survey Supernovae
This work trains a novel semi-supervised machine learning algorithm to photometrically classify 2,315 new SN-like light curves with host galaxy spectroscopic redshifts from the Pan-STARRS1 Medium-Deep Survey, and discusses how this algorithm can be modified for online LSST data streams.

The results suggest that spectroscopic campaigns used for training photometric classifiers should focus on typing large numbers of well-observed, intermediate redshift transients instead of attempting to type a sample of transients that is directly representative of the full dataset being classified.
Measuring the Properties of Dark Energy with Photometrically Classified Pan-STARRS Supernovae. I. Systematic Uncertainty from Core-Collapse Supernova Contamination
The Pan-STARRS (PS1) Medium Deep Survey discovered over 5,000 likely supernovae (SNe) but obtained spectral classifications for just 10% of its SN candidates. We measured spectroscopic host galaxy
Performance of Random Forest Machine Learning Algorithms in Binary Supernovae Classification
An initial method to essentially determine SN type with as few data points as possible, where as few as five data points near peak identifies whether it is a Type Ia or CCSNe with better than 80% accuracy.
