We present a sample of normal type Ia supernovae from the Nearby Supernova Factory dataset with spectrophotometry at sufficiently late phases to estim ate the ejected mass using the bolometric light curve. We measure 56 Ni masses from the peak bolometric luminosity, then compare the luminosity in the 56 Co-decay tail to the expected rate of radioactive energy release from ejecta of a given mass. We infer the ejected mass in a Bayesian context using a semi-analytic model of the ejecta… 

Probing type Ia supernova properties using bolometric light curves from the Carnegie Supernova Project and the CfA Supernova Group

We present bolometric light curves constructed from multi-wavelength photometry of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) from the Carnegie Supernova Project and the CfA Supernova Group, using near-infrared

Evidence for Sub-Chandrasekhar Mass Type Ia Supernovae from an Extensive Survey of Radiative Transfer Models

There are two classes of viable progenitors for normal Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia): systems in which a white dwarf explodes at the Chandrasekhar mass ( ), and systems in which a white dwarf explodes

How Do Type Ia Supernova Nebular Spectra Depend on Explosion Properties? Insights from Systematic Non-LTE Modeling

We present a radiative transfer code to model the nebular phase spectra of supernovae (SNe) in non-LTE (NLTE). We apply it to a systematic study of SNe Ia using parameterized 1D models and show how

Constraints on the Physical Properties of SNe Ia from Photometry

We present a photometric study of 17 SNe Ia based on multi-color (Johnson–Cousins–Bessell BVRI) data taken at Piszkéstető mountain station of Konkoly Observatory, Hungary between 2016 and 2018. We

Type Ia supernovae have two physical width–luminosity relations and they favour sub-Chandrasekhar and direct collision models - II. Colour evolution

While the width-luminosity relation among type Ia supernovae (slower is brighter) is one of the best studied properties of this type of events, its physical basis has not been identified

Measuring nickel masses in Type Ia supernovae using cobalt emission in nebular phase spectra

The light curves of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are powered by the radioactive decay of 56Ni to 56Co at early times, and the decay of 56Co to 56Fe from ?60 d after explosion. We examine the evolution

On the environments of Type Ia supernovae within host galaxies

We present constraints on supernovae type Ia (SNe Ia) progenitors through an analysis of the environments found at the explosion sites of 102 events within star-forming host galaxies. Hα and GALEX

Type Ia supernovae have two physical width–luminosity relations and they favour sub-Chandrasekhar and direct collision models – I. Bolometric

While the width-luminosity relation among type Ia supernovae (slower is brighter) is one of the best studied properties of this type of events, its physical basis has not been identified

Photometric and Spectroscopic Properties of Type Ia Supernova 2018oh with Early Excess Emission from the Kepler 2 Observations

Supernova (SN) 2018oh (ASASSN-18bt) is the first spectroscopically confirmed Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) observed in the Kepler field. The Kepler data revealed an excess emission in its early light

Deriving Thermonuclear Supernova Properties from Gamma-Ray Line Measurements

We illustrate methods for deriving properties of thermonuclear, or Type Ia, supernovae, including synthesized 56Ni mass, total ejecta mass, ejecta kinetic energy, and 56Ni distribution in velocity,

The type Ia supernova SNLS-03D3bb from a super-Chandrasekhar-mass white dwarf star

It is shown that the high-redshift supernova SNLS-03D3bb has an exceptionally high luminosity and low kinetic energy that both imply a super-Chandrasekhar-mass progenitor, which may provide an explanation for the observed trend that overluminous type Ia supernovae occur only in ‘young’ environments.
