(AMER INST PHYSICS, 1993-12)
      We have started a search for supernovae as a collaboration between the University of Chile and the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory, with the aim of producing a moderately distant (0.01 < z < 0.10) sample of Type ...

      BV(RI)_KC_ light curves are presented for 27 type Ia supernovae discovered during the course of the Calan/Tololo Survey and for two other SNe Ia observed during the same period. Estimates of the maximum light magnitudes ...
    • The luminous Type Ic supernova 1992ar at z=0.145 

      Clocchiatti, Alejandro; Phillips, Mark M.; Suntzeff, Nicholas B.; Della Valle, Massimo; Cappellaro, Enrico; Turatto, Massimo; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Avilés, Roberto; Navarrete, Mauricio; Smith, Chris; Rubenstein, Eric P.; Covarrubias, Ricardo; Stetson, Peter B.; Maza Sancho, José; Riess, Adam G.; Zanin, Caterina (2000-02-01)
      We present spectroscopic and photometric observations of SN 1992ar, the most distant supernova (SN) in the Cala n/Tololo Survey. We compare its spectrum with those of nearby Type Ia and Ic SNe and conclude that the ...
    • On the diversity of superluminous supernovae: ejected mass as the dominant factor 

      Nicholl, M.; Smartt, S. J.; Jerkstrand, A.; Inserra, C.; Sim, S. A.; Chen, T. W.; Benetti, S.; Fraser, M.; Gal Yam, Avishay; Kankare, E.; Maguire, K.; Smith, K.; Sullivan, M.; Valenti, S.; Young, D. R.; Baltay, C.; Bauer, F. E.; Baumont, S.; Bersier, D.; Botticella, M.

P.; Schulze, S.; Sollerman, J.; Taddia, F.; Yuan, F. (Oxford University Press, 2015)
      We assemble a sample of 24 hydrogen-poor superluminous supernovae (SLSNe). Parameterizing the light-curve shape through rise and decline time-scales shows that the two are highly correlated. Magnetar-powered models can ...
    • SN 1992K - a twin to the subluminous type ia SN 1991bg 

      Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Phillips, M.

C.; Wells, Lisa A.; Ruiz González, María Teresa; Prosser, Charles F.; Krzeminski, W.; Baylin, Charles D.; Hartigan, Patrick; Hughes, Joanne (1994-12)
      We present spectroscopic and photometric data for SN 1992K, a Type Ia event found in the course of the Calan/Tololo supernova survey. These data show an impressive similarity with the spectra and light curves of the atypical ...
