Niharika Sravan, Northwestern University, "Single and binary progenitors of 'partially stripped' supernovae"
KICP seminar: May 26 @ 12PM, ERC 401
The rise of survey telescopes in the past decade have led to an explosion in the number of supernovae (SNe) discovered and the amount of information available on them. They have revealed an unexpected diversity in the properties of progenitor stars and their environments. Unfortunately, theoretical efforts to explain these have lagged.
