An electron-capture supernova (ECSN) is a core-collapse supernova (CCSN) explosion of a super-asymptotic giant branch (SAGB) star with a main-sequence mass MMS ∼ 7–9.5 M☉. The explosion takes place in accordance with core bounce and subsequent neutrino heating and is a unique example successfully produced by first-principle simulations. This allows us to derive a first self-consistent multicolor light curve of a CCSN. Adopting the explosion properties derived by the first-principle simulation…

Light-curve Modeling of Fast-evolving Supernova KSN 2015K: Explosion in Circumstellar Matter of a Super-AGB Progenitor
Recent supernova searches revealed a number of fast-evolving luminous transients. We perform radiation-hydrodynamic simulations of light curves of several models of supernova from super-asymptotic
Final evolution of super-AGB stars and supernovae triggered by electron capture
Abstract Stars of 8–10 M⊙ form a strongly electron-degenerate oxygen–neon–magnesium core which is more massive than ∼1.1 M⊙, and become super-Asymptotic Giant Branch stars. The oxygen–neon–magnesium
Electron-capture supernovae exploding within their progenitor wind
The most massive stars on the asymptotic giant branch (AGB), so called super-AGB stars, are thought to produce supernovae (SNe) triggered by electron captures in their degenerate O+Ne+Mg cores.
Hydrodynamical Neutron-star Kicks in Electron-capture Supernovae and Implications for the CRAB Supernova
Neutron stars (NSs) obtain kicks, typically of several 100 km s−1, at birth. The gravitational tugboat mechanism can explain these kicks as consequences of asymmetric mass ejection during the
CORE-COLLAPSE SUPERNOVAE FROM 9 TO 120 SOLAR MASSES BASED ON NEUTRINO-POWERED EXPLOSIONS
Nucleosynthesis, light curves, explosion energies, and remnant masses are calculated for a grid of supernovae (SNe) resulting from massive stars with solar metallicity and masses from 9.0 to 120 M ⊙
Synthetic observables for electron-capture supernovae and low-mass core collapse supernovae
Stars in the mass range from 8M⊙ to 10M⊙ are expected to produceone of two types of supernovae (SNe), either electron-capture supernovae (ECSNe) or core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe), depending on
Evolution of ONeMg Core in Super-AGB Stars toward Electron-capture Supernovae: Effects of Updated Electron-capture Rate
Stars with ∼8–10 M⊙ evolve to form a strongly degenerate ONeMg core. When the core mass becomes close to the Chandrasekhar mass, the core undergoes electron captures on 24Mg and 20Ne that induce an
Do electron-capture supernovae make neutron stars? First multidimensional hydrodynamic simulations of the oxygen deflagration
In the classical picture, electron-capture supernovae and the accretion-induced collapse of oxygen-neon white dwarfs (ONeWDs) undergo an oxygen deflagration phase before gravitational collapse
Three-dimensional models of core-collapse supernovae from low-mass progenitors with implications for Crab
We present 3D full-sphere supernova simulations of non-rotating low-mass (∼9 M⊙) progenitors, covering the entire evolution from core collapse through bounce and shock revival, through shock

We present new 1D (spherical) and 2D (axisymmetric) simulations of electron-capture (EC) and low-mass iron-core-collapse supernovae (SN). We consider six progenitor models: the ECSN progenitor from
