A survey of Type II supernovae explosion models has been carried out to determine how their light curves and spectra vary with their mass, metallicity, and explosion energy. The presupernova models are taken from a recent survey of massive stellar evolution at solar metallicity supplemented by new calculations at subsolar metallicity. Explosions are simulated by the motion of a piston near the edge of the iron core and the resulting light curves and spectra are calculated using full multi… 

Inferring Explosion Properties from Type II-Plateau Supernova Light Curves

We present advances in modeling Type IIP supernovae (SNe IIP) using MESA for evolution to shock breakout coupled with STELLA for generating light and radial velocity curves. Explosion models and

PAIR INSTABILITY SUPERNOVAE: LIGHT CURVES, SPECTRA, AND SHOCK BREAKOUT

For the initial mass range (140 M☉ < M < 260 M☉) stars die in a thermonuclear runaway triggered by the pair-production instability. The supernovae they make can be remarkably energetic (up to ∼1053

LIGHT CURVES OF CORE-COLLAPSE SUPERNOVAE WITH SUBSTANTIAL MASS LOSS USING THE NEW OPEN-SOURCE SUPERNOVA EXPLOSION CODE (SNEC)

We present the SuperNova Explosion Code (SNEC), an open-source Lagrangian code for the hydrodynamics and equilibrium-diffusion radiation transport in the expanding envelopes of supernovae. Given a

MULTICOLOR LIGHT CURVE SIMULATIONS OF POPULATION III CORE-COLLAPSE SUPERNOVAE: FROM SHOCK BREAKOUT TO 56CO DECAY

The properties of the first generation of stars and their supernova (SN) explosions remain unknown due to the lack of actual observations. Recently, many transient surveys have been conducted and the

SN 2012ec: mass of the progenitor from PESSTO follow-up of the photospheric phase

We present the results of a photometric and spectroscopic monitoring campaign of SN 2012ec, which exploded in the spiral galaxy NGC 1084, during the photospheric phase. The photometric light curve

The difficulty of inferring progenitor masses from type-II-Plateau supernova light curves

Much controversy surrounds the inferred progenitor masses of type-II-Plateau (II-P) supernovae (SNe). The debate is nourished by the discrepant results from radiation-hydrodynamics simulations,

Light-curve Analysis of Ordinary Type IIP Supernovae Based on Neutrino-driven Explosion Simulations in Three Dimensions

Type II-plateau supernovae (SNe IIP) are the most numerous subclass of core-collapse SNe originating from massive stars. In the framework of the neutrino-driven explosion mechanism, we study the

A non-spherical core in the explosion of supernova SN 2004dj

Multi-epoch spectropolarimetry of a classic type II-P supernova reveals the abrupt appearance of significant polarization when the inner core is first exposed in the thinning ejecta (∼90 days after explosion), suggesting that a strongly non-spherical explosion may be a generic feature of core-collapse supernovae of all types.
