UV properties of type Ia supernova and their host galaxies

Tucker , Bradley

Description

Type Ia Supernova (SN Ia) are a powerful, albeit not completely understood, tool for cosmology. Gaps in our understanding of their progenitors and detailed physics can lead to systematic errors in the cosmological distances they measure. We use UV data in two context to help further our understanding of SN Ia progenitors and physics. We analyze a set of nearly 700 light curves, and find no signature of the shock heating of a red giant companion, predicted by Kasen (Astrophys. J. 708:1025,...[Show more]
