    • 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) = ...

C.; Kotak, R.; LaCluyze, Aaron P.; Maguire, K.; Mattila, S.; Maza Sancho, José; McCrum, M.; Miluzio, M.; Norgaard Nielsen, H. U.; Nysewander, M. C.; Ochner, P.; Pan, Y. C.; Pumo, M. L.; Reichart, D. E.; Tan, T. G.; Taubenberger, S.; Tomasella, L.; Turatto, M.; Wright, D. (The American Astronomical Society, 2013-04)
      We report the results of a three-year-long dedicated monitoring campaign of a restless luminous blue variable (LBV) in NGC 7259. The object, named SN 2009ip, was observed photometrically and spectroscopically in the optical ...
    • SN 2009ib: a Type II-P supernova with an unusually long plateau 

      Takáts, K.; Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Pumo, M. L.; Paillas, E.; Zampieri, L.; Elias-Rosa, N.; Benetti, S.; Bufano, Filomena; Cappellaro, E.; Ergon, M.; Fraser, M.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Inserra, C.; Kankare, E.; Smartt, S. J.; Stritzinger, M. D.; Van Dyk, S. D.; Haislip, Joshua B.; LaCluyze, A. P.; Moore, J. P.; Reichart, D. (Royal Astronomical Society, 2015)
      We present optical and near-infrared photometry and spectroscopy of SN 2009ib, a Type II-P supernova in NGC 1559. This object has moderate brightness, similar to those of the intermediate-luminosity SNe 2008in and 2009N. ...
    • SN 2009jf: a slow-evolving stripped-envelope core-collapse supernova 

      Valenti, S.; Fraser, M.; Benetti, S.; Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Sollerman, J.; Inserra, C.; Cappellaro, E.; Pastorello, A.; Smartt, S.

M.; Kankare, E.; Kotak, R.; LaCluyze, Aaron P.; Magill, L.; Mattila, S.; Maza Sancho, José; Mazzali, Paolo; Reichart, D. E.; Taubenberger, S.; Turatto, M.; Zampieri, L. (2011)
      We present an extensive set of photometric and spectroscopic data for SN 2009jf, a nearby Type Ib supernova (SN), spanning from∼20 d before B-band maximum to 1 yr after maximum. We show that SN 2009jf is a slowly evolving ...
    • SN 2009N: linking normal and subluminous Type II-P SNe 

      Takats, K.; Pumo, M. L.; Elías-Rosa, N.; Pastorello, A.; Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Paillas, E.; Zampieri, L.; Anderson, J.

      We present ultraviolet, optical, near-infrared photometry and spectroscopy of SN 2009N in NGC 4487. This object is a Type II-P supernova with spectra resembling those of subluminous II-P supernovae, while its bolometric ...
    • The Type II supernovae 2006V and 2006au: two SN 1987A-like events 

      Taddia, F.; Stritzinger, M. D.; Sollerman, J.; Phillips, M. M.; Anderson, Joseph P.; Ergon, M.; Folatelli, Gastón; Fransson, C.; Freedman, W.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Morrell, N.; Pastorello, A.; Persson, S. E.; González, S. (EDP SCIENCES S A, 2012-01)
      Context. Supernova 1987A revealed that a blue supergiant (BSG) star can end its life as a core-collapse supernova (SN). SN 1987A and other similar objects exhibit properties that distinguish them from ordinary Type II ...
