Title: Observational properties of stripped-envelope supernovae and constraints on their progenitors
Date: Thu, Mar 15, 2018, 13:30 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: Massive stars end their life as core-collapse supernovae but the details on the progenitors and supernova explosion are not clear yet. The emission of the shock breakout gives important information on the properties of the supernova progenitor.
In this talk I will give brief introduction to the interpretation of the stripped-envelope supernova progenitors and our observation of a recent type Ic supernova with a possible shock breakout signal.
