We present extensive multi-wavelength observations of the extremely rapidly declining Type Ic supernova (SN Ic), SN 2005ek. Reaching a peak magnitude of MR = −17.3 and decaying by ∼3 mag in the first 15 days post-maximum, SN 2005ek is among the fastest Type I supernovae observed to date. The spectra of SN 2005ek closely resemble those of normal SN Ic, but with an accelerated evolution. There is evidence for the onset of nebular features at only nine days post-maximum. Spectroscopic modeling… 

PTF 12gzk—A RAPIDLY DECLINING, HIGH-VELOCITY TYPE Ic RADIO SUPERNOVA

Only a few cases of Type Ic supernovae (SNe) with high-velocity ejecta (⩾0.2 c) have been discovered and studied. Here, we present our analysis of radio and X-ray observations of the Type Ic SN PTF

ULTRA-STRIPPED TYPE Ic SUPERNOVAE FROM CLOSE BINARY EVOLUTION

Recent discoveries of weak and fast optical transients raise the question of their origin. We investigate the minimum ejecta mass associated with core-collapse supernovae (SNe) of Type Ic. We show

Rapidly fading supernovae from massive star explosions

Transient surveys have recently discovered a class of supernovae (SNe) with extremely rapidly declining light curves. These events are also often relatively faint, especially compared to Type Ia SNe.

PROGENITORS OF TYPE IIb SUPERNOVAE IN THE LIGHT OF RADIO AND X-RAYS FROM SN 2013df

We present radio and X-ray observations of the nearby SN IIb 2013df in NGC 4414 from 10 to 250 days after the explosion. The radio emission showed a peculiar steep-to-shallow spectral evolution. We

The double-peaked Type Ic supernova 2019cad: another SN 2005bf-like object

We present the photometric and spectroscopic evolution of supernova (SN) 2019cad during the first ∼100 d from explosion. Based on the light-curve morphology, we find that SN 2019cad resembles the

SN 2015U: A Rapidly Evolving and Luminous Type Ibn Supernova

Supernova (SN) 2015U (also known as PSN J07285387+3349106) was discovered in NGC 2388 on 2015 Feb. 11. A rapidly evolving and luminous event, it showed effectively hydrogen-free spectra dominated by

SN 2017czd: A Rapidly Evolving Supernova from a Weak Explosion of a Type IIb Supernova Progenitor

We present optical and near-infrared observations of the rapidly evolving supernova (SN) 2017czd that shows hydrogen features. The optical light curves exhibit a short plateau phase (∼13 days in the

The Radio Luminosity-risetime Function of Core-collapse Supernovae

We assemble a large set of 2–10 GHz radio flux density measurements and upper limits of 294 different supernovae (SNe), from the literature and our own and archival data. Only 31% of SNe were

Type Ic Supernovae

In this chapter discusses supernovae of Type Ic (SN Ic), the most stripped of core-collapse supernovae. SN Ic show little evidence for either hydrogen or helium in their ejecta. Nebular spectra have

SN2018kzr: A Rapidly Declining Transient from the Destruction of a White Dwarf

We present SN2018kzr, the fastest declining supernova-like transient, second only to the kilonova, AT2017gfo. SN2018kzr is characterized by a peak magnitude of Mr = −17.98, a peak bolometric

AN EMERGING CLASS OF BRIGHT, FAST-EVOLVING SUPERNOVAE WITH LOW-MASS EJECTA

A recent analysis of supernova (SN) 2002bj revealed that it was an apparently unique type Ib SN. It showed a high peak luminosity, with absolute magnitude MR ∼ −18.5, but an extremely fast-evolving

We present the discovery, photometric, and spectroscopic follow-up observations of SN 2010X (PTF 10bhp). This supernova decays exponentially with τd = 5 days and rivals the current recordholder in

An Unusually Fast-Evolving Supernova

SN 2002bj appears to be a member of a new class of supernovae, possibly formed by a helium detonation on a white dwarf ejecting a small envelope of material, and its properties suggest that it is of a kind predicted by theory but not previously observed.

SN 2003bg: A BROAD-LINED TYPE IIb SUPERNOVA WITH HYDROGEN

Models for the spectra and the light curve (LC), in the photospheric as well as in the late nebular phase, are used to infer the properties of the very radio-bright, broad-lined type IIb supernova
