We review how the single degenerate models for Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) works. In the binary star system of a white dwarf (WD) and its non-degenerate companion star, the WD accretes either hydrogen-rich matter or helium and undergoes hydrogen and helium shell-burning. We summarize how the stability and non-linear behavior of such shell-burning depend on the accretion rate and the WD mass and how the WD blows strong wind. We identify the following evolutionary routes for the accreting WD to… 

New Type Ia Supernova Yields and the Manganese and Nickel Problems in the Milky Way and Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxies

In our quest to identify the progenitors of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), we first update the nucleosynthesis yields for both near-Chandrasekhar- (Ch) and sub-Ch-mass white dwarfs (WDs) for a wide

Explosive Nucleosynthesis in Near-Chandrasekhar Mass White Dwarf Models for Type Iax Supernovae: Dependence on Model Parameters

The recently observed diversity of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) has motivated us to conduct the theoretical modeling of SNe Ia for a wide parameter range. In particular, the origin of Type Iax

Three-dimensional Simulation of Double Detonations in the Double-degenerate Model for Type Ia Supernovae and Interaction of Ejecta with a Surviving White Dwarf Companion

We study the hydrodynamics and nucleosynthesis in the double-detonation model of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) and the interaction between the ejecta and a surviving white dwarf (WD) companion in the

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

Although type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are so important in many astrophysical fields, a debate on their progenitor model is still endless. Searching the surviving companion in a supernova remnant (SNR)

Type Ia Supernovae and their Explosive Nucleosynthesis: Constraints on Progenitors

What the progenitors of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are, whether they are nearChandrasekhar mass or sub-Chandrasekhar mass white dwarfs, has been the matter of debate for decades. Various

Where are the double-degenerate progenitors of Type Ia supernovae?

Double white dwarf binaries with merger time-scales smaller than the Hubble time and with a total mass near the Chandrasekhar limit (i.e. classical Chandrasekhar population) or with high-mass

Origin of metals in old Milky Way halo stars based on GALAH and Gaia

Stellar and supernova nucleosynthesis in the first few billion years of the cosmic history have set the scene for early structure formation in the Universe, while little is known about their

Chemical Abundances in Sgr A East: Evidence for a Type Iax Supernova Remnant

Recent observations have shown a remarkable diversity of observational behaviors and explosion mechanisms in thermonuclear supernovae (SNe). An emerging class of peculiar thermonuclear SNe, called

Exploration of Aspherical Ejecta Properties in Type Ia Supernovae: Progenitor Dependence and Applications to Progenitor Classification

Several explosions of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) have been found to exhibit deviations from spherical symmetry upon closer inspection. Examples are the gamma-ray lines from SN 2014J as measured by

A SINGLE DEGENERATE PROGENITOR MODEL FOR TYPE Ia SUPERNOVAE HIGHLY EXCEEDING THE CHANDRASEKHAR MASS LIMIT

Recent observations of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) suggest that some of the progenitor white dwarfs (WDs) had masses up to 2.4–2.8 M☉, highly exceeding the Chandrasekhar mass limit. We present a new

Young and Massive Binary Progenitors of Type Ia Supernovae and Their Circumstellar Matter

We present new evolutionary models for Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) progenitors, introducing the mass-stripping effect on a main-sequence (MS) or slightly evolved companion star by winds from a

FINAL EVOLUTION AND DELAYED EXPLOSIONS OF SPINNING WHITE DWARFS IN SINGLE DEGENERATE MODELS FOR TYPE Ia SUPERNOVAE

We study the occurrence of delayed SNe Ia in the single degenerate scenario. We assume that a massive carbon–oxygen (CO) white dwarf (WD) accretes matter coming from a companion star, making it spin

A New Model for Progenitor Systems of Type Ia Supernovae

We propose a new model for progenitor systems of Type Ia supernovae. The model consists of an accreting white dwarf and a lobe-filling, low-mass red giant. When the mass accretion rate exceeds a

Thermal Stability of White Dwarfs Accreting Hydrogen-rich Matter and Progenitors of Type Ia Supernovae

We revisit the properties of white dwarfs accreting hydrogen-rich matter, by constructing steady state models in which hydrogen shell burning consumes hydrogen at the same rate as the white dwarf

The single degenerate channel for the progenitors of Type Ia supernovae

Abstract We have carried out a detailed study of the single-degenerate channel for the progenitors of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia). In the model, a carbon-oxygen white dwarf (CO WD) accretes

Type Ia supernovae from very long delayed explosion of core–white dwarf merger

We study the spinning down time-scale of rapidly rotating white dwarfs (WDs) in the frame of the core-degenerate (CD) scenario for type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia). In the CD scenario, the Chandrasekhar

SINGLE-DEGENERATE TYPE Ia SUPERNOVAE WITHOUT HYDROGEN CONTAMINATION

The lack of hydrogen in spectra of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) is often seen as troublesome for single-degenerate (SD) progenitor models. We argue that, since continued accretion of angular momentum

Evolution of white dwarf binaries: supersoft X-ray sources and progenitors of type IA supernovae.

It is found that there are two types of systems that can produce type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), and that the derived birth rate of S Ne Ia in the Galaxy is roughly consistent with the observed one.

FINAL FATES OF ROTATING WHITE DWARFS AND THEIR COMPANIONS IN THE SINGLE DEGENERATE MODEL OF TYPE Ia SUPERNOVAE

Taking into account the rotation of mass-accreting white dwarfs (WDs) whose masses exceed the Chandrasekhar mass, we extend our new single degenerate model for the progenitors of Type Ia supernovae
