Global properties of different types of supernovae are overviewed. A special emphasis is made on the issues of interest both for the supernova and cosmic ray physics such as supernova shock waves and neutrino signal.

Search for neutrino bursts from collapsing stars on the basis of the BUST till 2006
Search for neutrino bursts from collapsing stars with the Baksan underground scintillation telescope has been carried out since 1980. In this study, the experimental data obtained during the period
Study of the penetrating component of cosmic rays underground using large scintillation detectors
The study of penetrating component of cosmic ray underground using large scintillation detectors situated in Russia and Italy is carried out during more than 40 years. The main results obtained at
Rotational explosion mechanism for collapsing supernovae and the two-stage neutrino signal from supernova 1987A in the Large Magellanic Cloud
The two-stage (double) signal produced by the outburst of the close supernova (SN) in the Large Magellanic Cloud, which started on and involved two neutrino signals during the night of 23 February
Features of Kamiokande-II, IMB, and Baksan observations and their interpretation in a two-component model for the signal
We consider the time, angular, and energy distributions of SN 1987A events and discuss the quality of their agreement with the expectations. A global interpretation is made by considering a simple
Gravitational collapse of a rotating iron stellar core and physical properties of the accompanying neutrino emission
We have ascertained an important role of rotation effects in a collapsing stellar core using a quasi-one-dimensional hydrodynamic model with a rigorous allowance for the neutrino energy losses
Neutrino oscillations in magnetically driven supernova explosions
We investigate neutrino oscillations from core-collapse supernovae that produce magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) explosions. By calculating numerically the flavor conversion of neutrinos in the highly
Multimessengers from core-collapse supernovae: multidimensionality as a key to bridge theory and observation
Core-collapse supernovae are dramatic explosions marking the catastrophic end of massive stars. The only means to get direct information about the supernova engine is from observations of neutrinos
Three Decades of Supernova 1987A Research
On February 23, 1987, a signal came to the Earth from a supernova that had exploded in one of the closest satellites to our galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud; in the Supernova Catalog, it was


Observation of a neutrino burst in coincidence with supernova 1987A in the Large Magellanic Cloud.
A burst of eight neutrino events preceding the optical detection of the supernova in the Large Magellanic cloud has been observed in a large underground water Cherenkov detector. The events span an
A rotating collapsar and possible interpretation of the LSD neutrino signal from SN 1987A
We consider an improved rotational mechanism of the explosion of a collapsing supernova. We show that this mechanism leads to two-stage collapse with a phase difference of ∼5 h. Based on this model,

The neutrino signatures obtained from extended hydrodynamic calculations of stellar-core collapse are described and compared, and suggest that SN1987A resulted from the collapse of a small core, and marginally suggest the delayed shock mechanism.
Comments on the Two Events Observed in Neutrino Detectors during the Supernova 1987a Outburst
Before optical detection of supernova SN 1987a, two events, separated in time by 4.72 hours, have been detected in underground laboratories: the first in the Mont Blanc Underground Neutrino
Cosmic gamma-ray bursts
Abstract The properties of the cosmic Gamma-ray Bursts (GRBs) are briefly summarized. Two fundamental theoretical problems are pointed out: the problem of the energy source, and the problem of
Observations of Gamma-Ray Bursts of Cosmic Origin
Sixteen short bursts of photons in the energy range 0.2–1.5 MeV have been observed between 1969 July and 1972 July using widely separated spacecraft. Burst durations ranged from less than 0.1 s to
The nu-process
As the core of a massive star collapses to form a neutron star, the flux of neutrinos in the overlying shells of heavy elements becomes so great that, despite the small cross section, substantial
Radio emission from the unusual supernova 1998bw and its association with the γ-ray burst of 25 April 1998
Data accumulated over the past year strongly favour the idea that γ-ray bursts lie at cosmological distances, although the nature of the power source remains unclear. Here we report radio

Pulsation regime of the thermonuclear explosion of a star's dense carbon core
The hydrodynamical problem of nuclear explosion of a dense carbon core of a star with mass 1.40M⊙ is solved numerically. In calculation the kinetics of carbon burning at the nuclear reaction
