Core-collapse supernovae prove to comprise the most common general class of exploding star in the Universe and they come in a great variety of flavors. The wide range of luminosities, expansion velocities, and chemical abundances displayed by these objects is evidence for large variations in explosion energy and in the properties of their progenitors. This paper summarizes observed and physical properties of all types of core collapse supernovae. Despite the great diversity displayed by these… Expand
Explosion mechanism, neutrino burst and gravitational wave in core-collapse supernovae
Core-collapse supernovae are among the most energetic explosions in the universe marking the catastrophic end of massive stars. In spite of rigorous studies for several decades, we still do notExpand
The radial distribution of core-collapse supernovae in spiral host galaxies
Aims. With the goal of providing constraints on the nature of the progenitors of core-collapse (CC) supernovae (SNe), we compare their radial distribution within their spiral host galaxies with theExpand
The Type Ia Supernova rate in the local Universe
Abstract Current measurements of the Type Ia Supernova (SNIa) rate, as determined by standard astronomical methods, are in reasonable agreement with measurements of the cosmic star formation rateExpand
We have developed a relativistic, radiation-hydrodynamics Lagrangian code, specifically tailored to simulate the evolution of the main observables (light curve and the evolution of photosphericExpand
Stellar Iron Core Collapse in 3+1 General Relativity and The Gravitational Wave Signature of Core-Collapse Supernovae
Core-Collapse Supernovae are nature’s grandest explosions, liberating ∼ 1053 erg, the colossal gravitational binding energy of a neutron star. Most of this energy, 99%, is emitted in neutrinos, 1%Expand
Metallicity effects on the cosmic SNIb/c and GRB rates
Supernovae Ib/c are likely to be associated to long GRBs, therefore it is important to compare the SN rate in galaxies with the GRB rate. To do that we computed Type Ib/c SN rates in galaxies ofExpand
Paired galaxies with different activity levels and their supernovae
We investigate the influence of close neighbor galaxies on the properties of supernovae (SNe) and their host galaxies using 56 SNe located in pairs of galaxies with different levels of star formationExpand
Radiation-hydrodynamical modelling of underluminous Type II plateau supernovae
With the aim of improving our knowledge about the nature of the progenitors of low-luminosity Type II plateau supernovae (LL SNe IIP), we made radiation-hydrodynamical models of the well-sampled LLExpand
Using a parametric approach, we determine the configuration of super-AGB stars at the explosion as a function of the initial mass and metallicity, in order to verify if the EC-SN scenario involving aExpand
SN 2005bf: A Possible Transition Event between Type Ib/c Supernovae and Gamma-Ray Bursts
We present ugriBV photometry and optical spectroscopy of the Type Ib/Ic SN 2005bf covering the first �100 days following discovery. The ugBV light curves displayed an unprecedented morphology amongExpand


Observed and Physical Properties of Core-Collapse Supernovae
I use photometry and spectroscopy data for 24 Type II plateau supernovae (SNe IIP) to examine their observed and physical properties. This data set shows that these objects encompass a wide range ofExpand
The Nature of the Progenitor of the Type II-P Supernova 1999em*
The masses and the evolutionary states of the progenitors of core-collapse supernovae (SNe) are not well constrained by direct observations. Stellar evolution theory generally predicts that massiveExpand
Supernovae and Nucleosynthesis: An Investigation of the History of Matter, from the Big Bang to the Present
This book investigates the question of how matter has evolved since its origin in the Big Bang, from the cosmological synthesis of hydrogen and helium to the generation of the complex set of nucleiExpand
Bipolar Supernova Explosions
We discuss the optical spectropolarimetry of several core-collapse supernovae, SN 1996cb (Type IIB), SN 1997X (Type Ic), and SN 1998S (Type IIn). The data show polarization evolution of severalExpand
Optical spectra of supernovae
The temporal evolution of the optical spectra of various types of supernovae (SNe) is illustrated, in part to aid observers classifying supernova candidates. Type II SNe are defined by the presenceExpand
Supernovae, Jets, and Collapsars
We continue our study of the possible production of supernovae and a variety of high-energy transients by black hole formation in massive stars endowed with rotation: the "collapsar model." The blackExpand
Supernova 1996L: evidence of a strong wind episode before the explosion
Observations of the Type II supernova (SN) 1996L reveal the presence of a slowly expanding (v∼ 700 km s-1) shell at ∼ 1016 cm from the exploding star. Narrow emission features are visible in theExpand
Direct Analysis of Spectra of Type Ib Supernovae
Synthetic spectra generated with the parameterized supernova synthetic-spectrum code SYNOW are compared to photospheric-phase spectra of Type Ib supernovae (SNe Ib). Although the synthetic spectraExpand
The Type Ic Supernova 1994I in M51: Detection of Helium and Spectral Evolution
We present a series of spectra of SN 1994I in M51, starting 1 week prior to maximum brightness. The nebular phase began about 2 months after the explosion; together with the rapid decline of theExpand
Supernova explosions in the Universe
During the lifetime of our Milky Way galaxy, there have been something like 100 million supernova explosions, which have enriched the Galaxy with the oxygen we breathe, the iron in our cars, theExpand
