Abstract: Supernova (SN) light curve simulations help us better understand the physics of SNe and their progenitors by comparing the radiation hydro simulations of outbursts with multiwavelength photometry.
In this talk, I will overview the peculiarities of radiative transfer in simulations of multicolor light curves, paying particular attention to luminous and energetic SNe. The results are applicable in many hot topics of transient astronomy: first SNe, superluminous SNe, hypernovae, and low-mass SNe.
