Core-collapse supernova (SN) explosions mark the end of the tumultuous life of massive stars. Determining the nature of their progenitors is a crucial step towards understanding the properties of SNe. Until recently, no progenitor has been directly detected for SN of type Ibc, which are believed to come from massive stars that lose their hydrogen envelope through stellar winds and from binary systems where the companion has stripped the H envelope from the primary. Here we analyze recently… Expand

The very young resolved stellar populations around stripped-envelope supernovae
The massive star origins for Type IIP supernovae (SNe) have been established through direct detection of their red supergiants progenitors in pre-explosion observations; however, there has beenExpand

TLDR
Recent efforts to predict the nature of stars before death by performing coupled stellar evolution and atmosphere modelling of single stars in the pre-SN stage are reviewed, and the detectability of SN Ibc progenitors is assessed. Expand
Predicting the Presence of Companions for Stripped-envelope Supernovae: The Case of the Broad-lined Type Ic SN 2002ap
Many young, massive stars are found in close binaries. Using population synthesis simulations we predict the likelihood of a companion star being present when these massive stars end their lives asExpand
The Rise and Fall of the Type Ib Supernova iPTF13bvn Not a Massive Wolf-Rayet Star
Context. We investigate iPTF13bvn, a core-collapse (CC) supernova (SN) in the nearby spiral galaxy NGC 5806. This object was discovered by the intermediate Palomar Transient Factory (iPTF) very closeExpand

Abstract Over the last 15 years, the supernova community has endeavoured to directly identify progenitor stars for core-collapse supernovae discovered in nearby galaxies. These precursors are oftenExpand
Possible binary progenitors for the Type Ib supernova iPTF13bvn
Cao et al. reported a possible progenitor detection for the Type Ib supernovae iPTF13bvn for the first time. We find that the progenitor is in fact brighter than the magnitudes previously reported byExpand

We present optical observations of supernova SN 2014C, which underwent an unprecedented slow metamorphosis from H-poor type Ib to H-rich type IIn over the course of one year. The observedExpand
Observational Properties of Type Ib/c Supernova Progenitors in Binary Systems
In several recent observational studies of Type Ib/c supernovae (SNe Ib/c), the inferred ejecta masses have a peak value of 2.0–4.0 , in favor of the binary scenario for their progenitors rather thanExpand
