If the neutrino luminosity from the proto-neutron star formed during a massive star core collapse exceeds a critical threshold, a supernova (SN) results. Using spherical quasi-static evolutionary sequences for hundreds of progenitors over a range of metallicities, we study how the explosion threshold maps onto observables, including the fraction of successful explosions, the neutron star (NS) and black hole (BH) mass functions, the explosion energies (E_SN) and nickel yields (M_Ni), and their…

Mechanical Feedback from Black Hole Accretion as an Energy Source of Core-collapse Supernova Explosions
According to the traditional scenario for core-collapse supernovae, the core of the collapsing star forms a neutron star and its gravitational energy release sends out a shockwave into the stellar

We study explosion characteristics of ultra-stripped supernovae (SNe), which are candidates of SNe generating binary neutron stars (NSs). As a first step, we perform stellar evolutionary simulations
Mass Ejection in Failed Supernovae: Equation of State and Neutrino Loss Dependence
A failed core-collapse supernova from a nonrotating progenitor can eject mass due to a weakening of gravity associated with neutrino emission from the protoneutron star. This mechanism yields
