The emission of supernova remnants (SNRs) reflects the properties of both the progenitor supernovae (SNe) and the surrounding environment. The complex morphology of the remnants, however, hampers the disentanglement of the two contributions. Here, we aim at identifying the imprint of SN 1987A on the X-ray emission of its remnant and at constraining the structure of the environment surrounding the SN. We performed high-resolution hydrodynamic simulations describing SN 1987A soon after the core… 

Hydrodynamic simulations unravel the progenitor-supernova-remnant connection in SN 1987A

Context. Massive stars end their lives in catastrophic supernova (SN) explosions. Key information on the explosion processes and on the progenitor stars can be extracted from observations of

Bridging the gap between supernovae and their remnants through multi-dimensional hydrodynamic modeling

Abstract Supernova remnants (SNRs) are diffuse extended sources characterized by a complex morphology and a non-uniform distribution of ejecta. Such a morphology reflects pristine structures and

From Supernova to Supernova Remnant: The Three-dimensional Imprint of a Thermonuclear Explosion

Recent progress in three-dimensional modeling of supernovae (SNe) has shown the importance of asymmetries in the explosion. This calls for a reconsideration of the modeling of the subsequent phase,

The fully developed remnant of a neutrino-driven supernova

Context. The remnants of core-collapse supernovae (SNe) are probes of the physical processes associated with their parent SNe. Aims. Here we aim to explore to which extent the remnant keeps memory of

The infancy of supernova remnants: evolving a supernova into its remnant in 3D

Abstract Recently, first neutrino-driven supernova explosions have been obtained in 3D, self-consistent, first-principle simulations, these models are still not always exploding robustly and, in

3D MHD modeling of the expanding remnant of SN 1987A

Aims. We investigate the role played by a pre-supernova (SN) ambient magnetic field in the dynamics of the expanding remnant of SN 1987A, and the origin and evolution of the radio emission from the

Modeling and simulations of supernova remnants: A short review focused on recent progress in morphological studies

Supernova remnants (SNRs) are the outcome of supernovae (SNe, either core-collapse or thermonuclear). The remnant results from the interaction between the stellar ejecta and the ambient medium around

MODELING SNR CASSIOPEIA A FROM THE SUPERNOVA EXPLOSION TO ITS CURRENT AGE: THE ROLE OF POST-EXPLOSION ANISOTROPIES OF EJECTA

The remnants of core-collapse supernovae (SNe) have complex morphologies that may reflect asymmetries and structures developed during the progenitor SN explosion. Here we investigate how the

Three-dimensional modeling from the onset of the SN to the full-fledged SNR

The aim of this work is to bridge the gap between CC SNe and their remnants by investigating how post-explosion anisotropies in the ejecta influence the structure and chemical properties of the

Modeling the mixed-morphology supernova remnant IC 443

Context. The morphology and the distribution of material observed in supernova remnants (SNRs) reflect the interaction of the supernova (SN) blast wave with the ambient environment, the physical

MULTI-DIMENSIONAL SIMULATIONS OF THE EXPANDING SUPERNOVA REMNANT OF SN 1987A

The expanding remnant from SN 1987A is an excellent laboratory for investigating the physics of supernovae explosions. There is still a large number of outstanding questions, such as the reason for

The 3-D structure of SN 1987A's inner ejecta

Context. Observing the inner ejecta of a supernova is possible only in a handful of nearby supernova remnants. The core-collapse explosion mechanism has been extensively explored in recent models and

Bursting SN 1996cr's bubble: hydrodynamic and X-ray modelling of its circumstellar medium

SN1996cr is one of the five closest supernovae (SNe) to explode in the past 30 yr. Due to its fortuitous location in the Circinus galaxy at ~3.7 Mpc, there is a wealth of recently acquired and
