P.; Schulze, Steve; Sollerman, J.; Taddia, F.; Yuan, F. (Royal Astronomical Society, 2016)
      This is an erratum to the paper ‘On the diversity of superluminous supernovae: ejected mass as the dominant factor’, published in MNRAS, 2015, 452.
    • High luminosity, slow ejecta and persistent carbon lines: SN 2009dc challenges thermonuclear explosion scenarios 

      Taubenberger, S.; Benetti, S.; Childress, M.; Pakmor, R.; Hachinger, S.; Mazzali, Paolo; Stanishev, V.; Elias-Rosa, Nancy; Agnoletto, I.; Bufano, Filomena; Ergon, M.; Harutyunyan, A.; Inserra, C.; Kankare, E.; Kromer, M.; Navasardyan, H.; Nicolas, J.; Pastorello, A.; Prosperi, E.; Salgado, F.; Sollerman, J.; Stritzinger, M.; Turatto, M.; Valenti, S.; Hillebrandt, W. (WILEY-BLACKWELL, 2011-04)
      Extended optical and near-IR observations reveal that SN 2009dc shares a number of similarities with normal Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), but is clearly overluminous, with a (pseudo-bolometric) peak luminosity of log (L) = ...
    • NEARBY SUPERNOVA FACTORY OBSERVATIONS OF SN 2007IF: FIRST TOTAL MASS MEASUREMENT OF A SUPER-CHANDRASEKHAR-MASS PROGENITOR 

      Scalzo, R. A.; Aldering, G.; Antilogus, P.; Aragón, C.; Bailey, S.; Baltay, C.; Bongard, S.; Buton, C.; Childress, M.; Chotard, N.; Copin, Y.; Fakhouri, H. K.; Gal Yam, Avishay; Gangler, E.; Hoyer, Sergio; Kasliwal, M.; Loken, S.; Nugent, P.; Pain, R.; Pécontal, E.; Pereira, R.; Perlmutter, S.; Rabinowitz, David; Rau, A.; Rigaudier, G.; Runge, K.; Smadja, G.; Tao, C.; Thomas, R. C.; Weaver, B.; Wu, C. (2010-03)
      We present photometric and spectroscopic observations of SN 2007if, an overluminous (MV = -20.4), red (B -V = 0.16 at B-band maximum), slow-rising (trise = 24 days) type Ia supernova (SN Ia) in a very faint (Mg = -14.10) ...
    • 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. T.; Childress, M.; Dennefeld, M.; Della Valle, Massimo; Elias Rosa, N.; Feindt, U.; Galbany, Lluis; Hadjiyska, E.; Le Guillou, L.; Leloudas, G.; Mazzali, P.; McKinnon, R.; Polshaw, J.; Rabinowitz, D.; Rostami, S.; Scalzo, R.; Schmidt, B. 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 ...

C.; Ashall, C.; Benetti, S.; Romero Cañizales, C.; Smith, K. W.; Sullivan, M.; Takáts, K.; Young, D. R. (Oxford University Press, 2016)
      We present photometric and spectroscopic observations of SN 2013fc, a bright type II supernova (SN) in a circumnuclear star-forming ring in the luminous infrared galaxy ESO 154-G010, observed as part of the Public ESO ...
