This paper describes the data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey-II (SDSS-II) Supernova Survey conducted between 2005 and 2007. Light curves, spectra, classifications, and ancillary data are presented for 10,258 variable and transient sources discovered through repeat ugriz imaging of SDSS Stripe 82, a 300 deg(2) area along the celestial equator. This data release is comprised of all transient sources brighter than r similar or equal to 22.5 mag with no history of variability prior to 2004… 
Dependence of Type Ia supernova luminosities on their local environment
We present a fully consistent catalog of local and global properties of host galaxies of 882 Type Ia supernovæ (SNIa) that were selected based on their light-curve properties, spanning the redshift
Completed SDSS-IV extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey: Cosmological implications from two decades of spectroscopic surveys at the Apache Point Observatory

See Change: VLT spectroscopy of a sample of high-redshift Type Ia supernova host galaxies
The Supernova Cosmology Project has conducted the `See Change' programme, aimed at discovering and observing high-redshift (1.13 $\leq$ z $\leq$ 1.75) Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia). We used
Supernova host galaxies in the dark energy survey: I. Deep coadds, photometry, and stellar masses
The 5-yr Dark Energy Survey Supernova Programme (DES-SN) is one of the largest and deepest transient surveys to date in terms of volume and number of supernovae. Identifying and characterizing the
A Template-based Approach to the Photometric Classification of SN 1991bg-like Supernovae in the SDSS-II Supernova Survey
The use of Type Ia Supernovae (SNe Ia) to measure cosmological parameters has grown significantly over the past two decades. However, there exists a significant diversity in the SN Ia population that
The Dependence of the Type Ia Supernova Host Bias on Observation or Fitting Technique
More luminous Type Ia supernovae prefer less massive hosts and regions of higher star formation. This correlation is inverted during width–color–luminosity light-curve standardization resulting in
