  1. 1. Core-collapse Supernovae Theory vs. Observations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Dennis Alp; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Astrophysics; Supernovae; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : A core-collapse supernova (CCSN) is an astronomical explosion that indicates the death of a massive star. The iron core of the star collapses into either a neutron star or a black hole while the rest of the material is expelled at high velocities. READ MORE

  2. 2. Radio emission from supernovae

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Astronomy, Stockholm University

    Author : Esha Kundu; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; supernovae; radio emission; hydrodynamical simulation; Astronomy; astronomi;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the modeling of radio and X-ray emissions from supernova (SN) shock fronts and hydrodynamical simulations of SN-circumstellar medium (CSM) interaction. The interaction of SN ejecta with the CSM drives a strong shock wave into the CSM. READ MORE

  3. 3. Supernovae seen through gravitational telescopes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : Tanja Petrushevska; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; supernovae; strong gravitational lensing; star formation history; supernova rates; supernovor Gravitationslins; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : Galaxies, and clusters of galaxies, can act as gravitational lenses and magnify the light of objects behind them. The effect enables observations of very distant supernovae, that otherwise would be too faint to be detected by existing telescopes, and allows studies of the frequency and properties of these rare phenomena when the universe was young.

  4. 4. Looking for the high-mass progenitors of stripped-envelope supernovae

    University dissertation from Stockholm University

    Author : Emir Karamehmetoglu; Stockholms universitet.; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Supernova; Supernovae; Stripped-envelope supernovae; SN Type Ibc; SN; SNe; SN progenitor; Type Ibn; Astronomy; astronomi;

    Abstract : Stripped-envelope supernovae were thought to be the explosions of very massive stars (& 20 M) that lost their outer layers of hydrogen and/or helium in strong stellar winds. However, recent studies have highlighted that most stripped-envelope supernovae seem to be arising from rela- tively lower-mass progenitor stars in the 12 20 M(sun) range, creating a mystery about the fate of the higher-mass stars.

  5. 5. Spectral modeling of nebular-phase supernovae

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Astronomy, Stockholm University

    Author : Anders Jerkstrand; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; supernovae; nucleosynthesis; radiative transfer; massive stars; 1987A; IIP; supernovor; nukleosyntes; spektralmodellering; strålningstransport; massiva stjärnor; 1987A; IIP; astronomi; Astronomy;

    Abstract : Massive stars live fast and die young. They shine furiously for a few million years, during which time they synthesize most of the heavy elements in the universe in their cores. They end by blowing themselves up in a powerful explosion known as a supernova (SN). READ MORE
