Recent studies indicate that Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) consist of two groups—a "prompt" component whose rates are proportional to the host galaxy star formation rate, whose members have broader light curves and are intrinsically more luminous, and a "delayed" component whose members take several Gyr to explode, have narrower light curves, and are intrinsically fainter. As cosmic star formation density increases with redshift, the prompt component should begin to dominate. We use a two…

The dependence of Type Ia Supernovae luminosities on their host galaxies

Precision cosmology with Type la supernovae (SNe Ia) makes use of the fact that SN Ia luminosities depend on their light-curve shapes and colours. Using Supernova Legacy Survey (SNLS) and other data,

THE MEAN TYPE IA SUPERNOVA SPECTRUM OVER THE PAST NINE GIGAYEARS

We examine the possibility of evolution with redshift in the mean rest-frame ultraviolet (UV; λ ≲ 4500 Å) spectrum of Type Ia Supernovae (SNe Ia) sampling the redshift range 0 < z < 1.3. We find new

Evidence of short-lived SN Ia progenitors

We use the VESPA algorithm and spectra from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey to investigate the star formation history of the host galaxies of 257 Type Ia supernovae. We find 5$\sigma$ evidence for a

THE LOCAL HOSTS OF TYPE Ia SUPERNOVAE

We use multi-wavelength, matched aperture, integrated photometry from the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX), the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, and the RC3 to estimate the physical properties of 166

Implications of Two Type Ia Supernova Populations for Cosmological Measurements

Recent work suggests that Type Ia supernovae (SNe) are composed of two distinct populations: prompt and delayed. By explicitly incorporating properties of host galaxies, it may be possible to target

SUBLUMINOUS TYPE Ia SUPERNOVAE AT HIGH REDSHIFT FROM THE SUPERNOVA LEGACY SURVEY

The rate evolution of subluminous Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) is presented using data from the Supernova Legacy Survey. This sub-sample represents the faint and rapidly declining light curves of the

We use a sample of 1338 spectroscopically confirmed and photometrically classified Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) sourced from Carnegie Supernova Project, Center for Astrophysics Supernova Survey, Sloan

The Type Ia supernovae rate with Subaru/XMM-Newton Deep Survey

We present measurements of the rates of high-redshift Type Ia supernovae derived from the Subaru/XMM-Newton Deep Survey (SXDS). We carried out repeated deep imaging observations with Suprime-Cam on

EVOLUTION IN THE VOLUMETRIC TYPE Ia SUPERNOVA RATE FROM THE SUPERNOVA LEGACY SURVEY

We present a measurement of the volumetric Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) rate (SNRIa) as a function of redshift for the first four years of data from the Canada–France–Hawaii Telescope Supernova Legacy

The Type Ia Supernova Rate

We explore the idea that the Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) rate consists of two components: a prompt piece that is proportional to the star formation rate (SFR), and an extended piece that is

We compute the rate of supernovae (SNe) of different types along the Hubble sequence normalized to the near- infrared luminosity and to the stellar mass of the parent galaxies. This is made possible

We explore the idea that the observed variations in the peak luminosities of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) originate in part from a scatter in metallicity of the main-sequence stars that become white
