A theoretical color-velocity correlation for supernovae associated with gamma-ray bursts

Rapoport, Sharon; Sim, Stuart A; Maeda, Keiichi; Tanaka, Masaomi; Kromer, M; Nomoto, Ken'ichi


We carry out the first multi-dimensional radiative transfer calculations to simultaneously compute synthetic spectra and light curves for models of supernovae driven by fast bipolar outflows. These allow us to make self-consistent predictions for the orientation dependence of both color evolution and spectral features. We compare models with different degrees of asphericity and metallicity and find significant observable consequences of both. In aspherical models, we find spectral and light...[Show more]
