Hydrogen-rich supernovae, known as Type II (SNe II), are the most common class of explosions observed following the collapse of the core of massive stars. We used analytical estimates and population synthesis simulations to assess the fraction of SNe II progenitors that are expected to have exchanged mass with a companion prior to explosion. We estimate that 1/3 to 1/2 of SN II progenitors have a history of mass exchange with a binary companion before exploding. The dominant binary channels…

The explosive life of massive binaries
Massive stars are born predominantly as members of binary (or higher multiplicity) systems, and the presence of a companion can significantly alter their life and final fate. Therefore, any observed
Observability of inflated companion stars after supernovae in massive binaries
We carry out a systematic study of the response of companion stars in massive binaries after being impacted by supernova ejecta. A total of 720 1D stellar evolution calculations are performed to
The 50–100 pc scale parent stellar populations of Type II supernovae and limitations of single star evolution models
There is observational evidence of a dearth in core-collapse supernova (ccSN) explosions from stars with zero-age main-sequence (ZAMS) mass M0 ≈ 17–30M⊙, referred to as the ‘red supergiant
Evolution of Accretor Stars in Massive Binaries: Broader Implications from Modeling ζ Ophiuchi
Most massive stars are born in binaries close enough for mass transfer episodes. These modify the appearance, structure, and future evolution of both stars. We compute the evolution of a
The Explosion Mechanism of Core-Collapse Supernovae and Its Observational Signatures
The death of massive stars is shrouded in many mysteries. One of them is the mechanism that overturns the collapse of the degenerate iron core into an explosion, a process that determines the
Luminous Type II Short-Plateau Supernovae 2006Y, 2006ai, and 2016egz: A Transitional Class from Stripped Massive Red Supergiants
The diversity of Type II supernovae (SNe II) is thought to be driven mainly by differences in their progenitor’s hydrogen-rich (H-rich) envelope mass, with SNe IIP having long plateaus (∼100 days)
Live fast and die young : Evolution and fate of massive stars
This thesis investigates several aspects of the evolution of massive stars and binaries, with particular attention to the final fate of the star, and the implications of the stellar death for
Long-term evolution of a magnetic massive merger product
About 10% of stars more massive than ${\approx}\,1.5\,\mathrm{M}_\odot$ have strong, large-scale surface magnetic fields and are being discussed as progenitors of highly-magnetic white dwarfs and
The origins of low-luminosity supernovae: the case of SN 2016bkv
We investigate the low-luminosity supernova SN 2016bkv and its peculiar early-time interaction. For that, we compute radiative transfer models using the cmfgen code. Because SN 2016bkv shows signs
The uncertain masses of progenitors of core-collapse supernovae and direct-collapse black holes
We show that it is not possible to determine the final mass $M_{\rm fin}$ of a red supergiant (RSG) at the pre-supernova (SN) stage from its luminosity $L$ and effective temperature $T_{\rm eff}$


Observed Fractions of Core-Collapse Supernova Types and Initial Masses of their Single and Binary Progenitor Stars
We analyse the observed fractions of core-collapse supernova (SN) types from the Lick Observatory Supernova Search (LOSS), and we discuss the corresponding implications for massive star evolution.
Binary progenitor models of type IIb supernovae
Massive stars that lose their hydrogen-rich envelope down to a few tenths of a solar mass explode as extended type IIb supernovae, an intriguing subtype that links the hydrogen-rich type II
Delay-time distribution of core-collapse supernovae with late events resulting from binary interaction
Most massive stars, the progenitors of core-collapse supernovae, are in close binary systems and may interact with their companion through mass transfer or merging. We undertake a population

Measurement of the core-collapse progenitor mass distribution of the Small Magellanic Cloud
The physics of core-collapse (CC) supernovae (SNe) and how the explosions depend on progenitor properties are central questions in astronomy. For only a handful of SNe, the progenitor star has been
