      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 ...

(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 ...

A.; Kawka, A.; Kobayashi, Y.; Leibundgut, B.; Minezaki, T.; Navasardyan, H.; Nomoto, K.; Mattila, S.; Pietrinferni, A.; Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Raimondo, G.; Salvo, M.; Schmidt, B. P.; Sollerman, J.; Spyromilio, J.; Taubenberger, S.; Valentini, G.; Vennes, S.; Yoshii, Y. (Royal Astronomical Society, 2014-04-11)
      We present new data for five underluminous Type II-plateau supernovae (SNe IIP), namely SN 1999gn, SN 2002gd, SN 2003Z, SN 2004eg and SN 2006ov. This new sample of low-luminosity SNe IIP (LL SNe IIP) is analysed together ...

    • Time Dilation In The Light Curve Of The Distant Type Ia Supernova Sn 1995k 

      Leibundgut, B.; Schommer, R.; Phillips, M. M.; Riess, A.; Schmidt, B.; Spyromilio, J.; Walsh, J.; Suntzeff, Nicholas B.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Maza Sancho, José; Kirshner, R. P.; Challis, P.; Garnavich, P.; Smith, R. C.; Dressler, A.; Ciardullo, R. (The American Astronomical Society, 1996-07-20)
      The light curve of a distant Type Ia supernova acts like a clock that can be used to test the expansion of the universe. SN 1995K, at a spectroscopic redshift of z = 0.479, provides one of the first meaningful data sets ...
