Physics of Supernovae: theory, observations, unresolved problems

The main observational properties and resulting classification of supernovae (SNe) are briefly reviewed. Then we discuss the progress in modeling of two basic types of SNe - the thermonuclear and

D ec 2 00 8 Explosions inside Ejecta and Most Luminous

The extremely luminous supernova SN2006gy is explained in t he same way as other SNIIn events: light is produced by a radiative shock propaga tin in a dense circumstellar envelope formed by a

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

On one group of experimental results related to the search for neutrino radiation from SN 1987A: Commentary

We would like to attract the attention of readers to the group of studies in which correlations were found between the pulses in various detectors on February 23, 1987. By a confluence of

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



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

Observation of a neutrino burst from the supernova SN1987A.

A neutrono burst was observed in the KAMIOKANDE-II detector on 23 February during a time interval of 13 seconds and consisted of 11 electron events of energy 7.5 to 36 MeV with angles 18°±18° and 15°±27°.

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
