Recent discoveries of weak and fast optical transients raise the question of their origin. We investigate the minimum ejecta mass associated with core-collapse supernovae (SNe) of Type Ic. We show that mass transfer from a helium star to a compact companion can produce an ultra-stripped core which undergoes iron core collapse and leads to an extremely fast and faint SN Ic. In this Letter, a detailed example is presented in which the pre-SN stellar mass is barely above the Chandrasekhar limit… Expand

Ultra-stripped supernovae: progenitors and fate
The explosion of ultra-stripped stars in close binaries can lead to ejecta masses < 0.1 M_sun and may explain some of the recent discoveries of weak and fast optical transients. In Tauris et al.Expand
Multidimensional simulations of ultrastripped supernovae to shock breakout
The recent discoveries of many double neutron star systems and their detection as LIGO-Virgo merger events call for a detailed understanding of their origin. Explosions of ultra-stripped stars inExpand

Abstract We discuss light-curve and spectral properties of ultra-stripped core-collapse supernovae. Ultra-stripped supernovae are supernovae with ejecta masses of only ~0.1M ⊙ whose progenitors loseExpand
Type Ic Supernovae
In this chapter discusses supernovae of Type Ic (SN Ic), the most stripped of core-collapse supernovae. SN Ic show little evidence for either hydrogen or helium in their ejecta. Nebular spectra haveExpand
Final evolution of super-AGB stars and supernovae triggered by electron capture
Abstract Stars of 8–10 M⊙ form a strongly electron-degenerate oxygen–neon–magnesium core which is more massive than ∼1.1 M⊙, and become super-Asymptotic Giant Branch stars. The oxygen–neon–magnesiumExpand
A hot and fast ultra-stripped supernova that likely formed a compact neutron star binary
TLDR
The discovery of iPTF 14gqr is interpreted as evidence for ultra-stripped supernovae that form neutron stars in compact binary systems. Expand
Case A and B evolution towards electron capture supernova.
Most super AGB stars are expected to end their life as oxygen-neon white dwarfs rather than electron capture supernovae (ECSN). The reason is ascribed to the ability of the second dredge-up toExpand
Light-curve and spectral properties of ultrastripped core-collapse supernovae leading to binary neutron stars
We investigate light-curve and spectral properties of ultra-stripped core-collapse supernovae. Ultra-stripped supernovae are the explosions of heavily stripped massive stars which lost theirExpand
Core-collapse supernovae and their progenitors
Dedicated SN searches started over 100 years ago. Over that time, astronomers have collected large sets of observational data. They have developed detailed classification and achieved generalExpand
Super-AGB Stars and their Role as Electron Capture Supernova Progenitors
Abstract We review the lives, deaths and nucleosynthetic signatures of intermediate-mass stars in the range ≈6–12 M⊙, which form super-AGB stars near the end of their lives. The critical massExpand

A faint type of supernova from a white dwarf with a helium-rich companion
TLDR
A faint type Ib supernova is reported in the halo of the nearby isolated galaxy, NGC 1032, and it is concluded that it arises from a low-mass, old progenitor, likely to have been a helium-accreting white dwarf in a binary. Expand

An extremely luminous X-ray outburst at the birth of a supernova
TLDR
This work reports the serendipitous discovery of a supernova at the time of the explosion, marked by an extremely luminous X-ray outburst, and attributes the outburst to the ‘break-out’ of the supernova shock wave from the progenitor star, and shows that the inferred rate of such events agrees with that of all core-collapse supernovae.
