Abstract

The explosion of a core-collapse supernova drives a powerful shock front into the wind from the progenitor star. A layer of shocked circumstellar gas and ejecta develops that is subject to hydrodynamic instabilities. The hot gas can be observed directly by its X-ray emission, some of which is absorbed and re-radiated at lower frequencies by the ejecta and the circumstellar gas. Synchrotron radiation from relativistic electrons accelerated at the shock fronts provides information on the mass loss density if free-free absorption dominates at early times or the size of the emitting region if synchrotron self-absorption dominates. Analysis of the interaction leads to information on the density and structure of the ejecta and the circumstellar medium, and the abundances in these media. The emphasis here is on the physical processes related to the interaction.
