The brightness of type Ia supernovae, and their homogeneity as a class, makes them powerful tools in cosmology, yet little is known about the progenitor systems of these explosions. They are thought to arise when a white dwarf accretes matter from a companion star, is compressed and undergoes a thermonuclear explosion. Unless the companion star is another white dwarf (in which case it should be destroyed by the mass-transfer process itself), it should survive and show distinguishing properties… 
Tycho's Supernova: The View from Gaia
SN 1572 (Tycho Brahe’s supernova) clearly belongs to the Ia (thermonuclear) type. It was produced by the explosion of a white dwarf (WD) in a binary system. Its remnant has been the first of this
Discovery of the progenitor of the type Ia supernova 2007on
TLDR
The discovery of an object in pre-supernova archival X-ray images at the position of the recent type Ia supernova in the elliptical galaxy NGC 1404 is reported, which favours the accretion model for this supernova, although the host galaxy is older than the age at which the explosions are predicted in the accreting models.
Tycho Brahe’s 1572 supernova as a standard type Ia as revealed by its light-echo spectrum
TLDR
An optical spectrum of Tycho Brahe’s supernova near maximum brightness is obtained from a scattered-light echo more than four centuries after the direct light from the explosion swept past the Earth, finding that SN’1572 belongs to the majority class of normal type Ia supernovae.
Astrophysics: Progenitors of type Ia supernovae
TLDR
A study of the remains of a type Ia supernova whose light swept past Earth about 400 years ago finds no sign of a companion star, and indicates that the supernova's progenitor was a pair of white dwarfs, pointing to a double-degenerate merger as the most likely origin.
No hot and luminous progenitor for Tycho’s supernova
Type Ia supernovae have proven vital to our understanding of cosmology, both as standard candles and for their role in galactic chemical evolution; however, their origin remains uncertain. The
SUBARU HIGH-RESOLUTION SPECTROSCOPY OF STAR G IN THE TYCHO SUPERNOVA REMNANT
It is widely believed that Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) originate in binary systems where a white dwarf accretes material from a companion star until its mass approaches the Chandrasekhar mass and
NEWLY DETERMINED EXPLOSION CENTER OF TYCHO’S SUPERNOVA AND THE IMPLICATIONS FOR PROPOSED EX-COMPANION STARS OF THE PROGENITOR
“Star G,” near the center of the supernova remnant of Tycho’s SN 1572, has been claimed to be the ex-companion star of the exploding white dwarf, thus pointing to the progenitor being like a
No surviving evolved companions of the progenitor of SN 1006
TLDR
None of the stars within 4 arc minutes of the apparent site of the explosion is associated with the supernova remnant, and all giant and subgiant stars from being companions of the progenitor are excluded, indicating that fewer than 20 per cent of type Ia supernovae occur through the single-degenerate channel.

Type Ia supernovae play a significant role in the evolution of the universe and have a wide range of applications. It is widely believed that these events are the thermonuclear explosions of

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

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.
