Title: Theoretical Models for Hydrogen-poor Superluminous Supernovae
Date (JST): Wed, Feb 01, 2017, 15:40 - 16:40
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: Superluminous Supernovae (SLSNe) were discovered more than a decade ago, but the origin of such extremely powerful events still remains questionable. In my talk I will discuss some possible theoretical models for hydrogen-poor SLSNe, show their advantages and limitations, paying most attention to the model of interaction with an extended circumstellar medium.
