The massive star origins for Type IIP supernovae (SNe) have been established through direct detection of their red supergiants progenitors in pre-explosion observations; however, there has been limited success in the detection of the progenitors of H-deficient SNe. The final fate of more massive stars, capable of undergoing a Wolf-Rayet phase, and the origins of Type Ibc SNe remains debated, including the relative importance of single massive star progenitors or lower mass stars stripped in… Expand
The radial distribution of supernovae compared to star formation tracers
Given the limited availability of direct evidence (pre-explosion observations) for supernova (SN) progenitors, the location of supernovae (SNe) within their host galaxies can be used to set limits onExpand
Origins of Type Ibn SNe 2006jc/2015G in interacting binaries and implications for pre-SN eruptions
Type Ibn supernovae (SNe Ibn) are intriguing stellar explosions whose spectra exhibit narrow helium lines with little hydrogen. They trace the presence of circumstellar material (CSM) formed viaExpand
Bulk properties and physical characteristics of stripped-envelope supernovae
Stripped-envelope supernovae (SE-SNe) are a subset of core-collapse supernovae; the explosive death of a massive star. Their defining characteristic is the lack of promi- nent He and/or H envelopeExpand
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 beenExpand
Core-collapse supernovae ages and metallicities from emission-line diagnostics of nearby stellar populations
Massive stars are the main objects that illuminate H II regions and they evolve quickly to end their lives in core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe). Thus it is important to investigate the associationExpand
Constraining Type Iax supernova progenitor systems with stellar population age dating
Type Iax supernovae (SNe~Iax) are the most common class of peculiar SNe. While they are thought to be thermonuclear white-dwarf (WD) SNe, SNe~Iax are observationally similar to, but distinct fromExpand
Investigating the properties of stripped-envelope supernovae, what are the implications for their progenitors?
We present observations and analysis of 18 stripped-envelope supernovae observed during 2013–2018. This sample consists of five H/He-rich SNe, six H-poor/He-rich SNe, three narrow lined SNe Ic, andExpand
Connection of supernovae 2002ap, 2003gd, 2013ej, and 2019krl in M74 with atomic gas accretion and spiral structure
Studying the nature of various types of supernovae (SNe) is important for our understanding of stellar evolution. Observations of atomic and molecular gas in the host galaxies of gamma-ray burstsExpand
A potential progenitor for the Type Ic supernova 2017ein
We report the first detection of a credible progenitor system for a Type Ic supernova (SN Ic), SN 2017ein. We present spectra and photometry of the SN, finding it to be similar to carbon-rich,Expand
The origin of the late-time luminosity of supernova 2011dh.
Due to the small amount of hydrogen (${\leq 0.1M_{\odot}}$) remaining on the surface of their progenitors, Type IIb supernovae are sensitive probes of the mass loss processes of massive stars towardsExpand


The resolved stellar populations around 12 Type IIP supernovae
Core-collapse supernovae are found in regions associated with recent massive star formation. The stellar population observed around the location of a SN can be used as a probe of the origins of theExpand
The death of massive stars – I. Observational constraints on the progenitors of Type II-P supernovae
The progenitors of many type II core-collapse supernovae have now been identified directly on pre-discovery imaging. Here we present an extensive search for the progenitors of type Ibc supernovae inExpand
Progenitors of supernova Ibc: a single Wolf-Rayet star as the possible progenitor of the SN Ib iPTF13bvn
Core-collapse supernova (SN) explosions mark the end of the tumultuous life of massive stars. Determining the nature of their progenitors is a crucial step towards understanding the properties ofExpand
Progenitor Diagnostics for Stripped Core-collapse Supernovae: Measured Metallicities at Explosion Sites
Metallicity is expected to influence not only the lives of massive stars but also the outcome of their deaths as supernovae (SNe) and gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). However, there are surprisingly fewExpand
Constraints on the Binary Companion to the SN Ic 1994I Progenitor
Core-collapse supernovae (SNe), marking the deaths of massive stars, are among the most powerful explosions in the Universe, responsible, e.g., for a predominant synthesis of chemical elements inExpand
The massive binary companion star to the progenitor of supernova 1993J
Photometric and spectroscopic observations of SN1993J ten years after the explosion detect the unambiguous signature of a massive star: the binary companion to the progenitor. Expand

Abstract Over the last 15 years, the supernova community has endeavoured to directly identify progenitor stars for core-collapse supernovae discovered in nearby galaxies. These precursors are oftenExpand
The Type IIb supernova (SN) 1993J is one of only a few stripped-envelope SNe with a progenitor star identified in pre-explosion images. SN IIb models typically invoke H envelope stripping by massExpand
Predicting the Presence of Companions for Stripped-envelope Supernovae: The Case of the Broad-lined Type Ic SN 2002ap
Many young, massive stars are found in close binaries. Using population synthesis simulations we predict the likelihood of a companion star being present when these massive stars end their lives asExpand
