      We present a large-scale effort of creating composite spectra of high-redshift SNe Ia and comparing them to low-redshift counterparts in an attempt to understand possible cosmic evolution of SNe Ia, which has major ...
    • THE DISTANCES TO 5 TYPE-II SUPERNOVAE USING THE EXPANDING PHOTOSPHERE METHOD, AND THE VALUE OF HO 

      Schmidt, Brian P.; Kirshner, Robert P.; Eastman, Ronald G.; Phillips, Mark M.; Suntzeff, Nicholas B.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Maza Sancho, José; Avilés, Roberto (UNIV CHICAGO PRESS, 1994-09-01)
      We have used observations gathered at CTIO to measure distances by the expanding photosphere method (EPM) to five Type II supernovae. These supernovae lie at redshifts from cz = 1100 km s-1 to cz - 5500 km s-1, and increase ...
    • THE EXPANDING PHOTOSPHERE METHOD APPLIED TO SN-1992AM AT CZ=14600KM-S 

      Schmidt, Brian P.; Kirshner, Robert P.; Eastman, Ronald G.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Phillips, Mark M.; Suntzeff, Nicholas B.; Maza Sancho, José; Filippenko, Alexei V.; Ho, Luis C.; Matheson, Thomas; Grashuis, Randy; Aviles, Roberto; Kirkpatrick, J. Davy; Challis, Peter; Kuijken, Konrad; Zucker, Daniel; Bolte, Michael; Tyson, Neil D. (AMER INST PHYSICS, 1994-04)
      We present photometry and spectroscopy of SN 1992am for five months following its discovery by the Calan/CTIO SN search. These data show SN 1992am to be type II-P, displaying hydrogen in its spectrum and the typical shoulder ...
    • Exploring the outer solar system with the ESSENCE Supernova Survey 

      Becker, A. C.; Arraki, K.; Kaib, N. A.; Wood-Vasey, W. M.; Aguilera, C.; Blackman, J.

L.; Rest, A.; Riess, A. G.; Salvo, M. E.; Schmidt, Brian P.; Smith, R. C.; Sollerman, J.; Spyromilio, J.; Stubbs, C. W.; Suntzeff, Nicholas B.; Tonry, J. L.; Zenteno, A. (UNIV CHICAGO PRESS, 2008-07-20)
      We report the discovery and orbital determination of 14 trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) from the ESSENCE Supernova Survey difference imaging data set. Two additional objects discovered in a similar search of the SDSS-II ...

(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2008-08-11)
      As part of the European Supernova Collaboration, we obtained extensive photometry and spectroscopy of the Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) SN 2002dj covering epochs from 11 d before to nearly two years after maximum. Detailed ...
