      We examine the absolute luminosities of 29 SNe Ia in the Calan/Tololo survey. We confirm a relation between the peak luminosity of the SNe and the decline rate as measured by the light curve, as suggested by Phillips [ApJ, ...

      Type Ia supernovae forman observationally uniform class of stellar explosions, in that more luminous objects have smaller declinerates 1. This one-parameter behaviour allows type Ia supernovae to be calibrated as ...

      Stars that explode as supernovae come in two main classes. A type Ia supernova is recognized by the absence of hydrogen and the presence of elements such as silicon and sulphur in its spectrum; this class of supernova is ...
    • Bersten, Melina C.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario (2009-08-10)
      Using data of three well observed Type II plateau supernovae (SNe II-P), SNe 1987A, 1999em, and 2003hn, and two atmosphere models by Eastman et al. and Dessart & Hillier, we derive calibrations for bolometric corrections ...

      The velocity of the inner ejecta of stripped-envelope core-collapse supernovae (CC-SNe) is studied by means of an analysis of their nebular spectra. Stripped-envelope CC-SNe are the result of the explosion of bare cores ...

      We present a statistical analysis of the environments of 11 supernovae (SNe) which occurred in six nearby galaxies (z less than or similar to 0.016). All galaxies were observed with MUSE, the high spatial resolution ...

    • Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario (Macmillan Publishers Limited, 2011-12-15)
      Stellar explosions known as type Ia supernovae are a significant tool in cosmology, but their exact nature is unknown. Two studies bring an understanding of these cosmic blasts a step closer.

      Phenomenological relations exist between the peak luminosity and other observables of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) that allow one to standardize their peak luminosities. However, several issues are yet to be clarified: ...
    • Atal Chomali, Vicente (Universidad de Chile, 2012)
      Este trabajo representa un primer intento para unir el paradigma inflacionario con teorías de bigravedad. Por una parte, inflación es un período hipotético dentro de la historia del Universo durante del cual el Universo ...
