Ultraviolet Supernovae

  • Nino Panagia
Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 598)

Abstract

The observations of supernovae made with IUE and HST are reviewed and discussed. The various supernova types are characterized and discussed in the light of their ultraviolet properties. Special emphasis is placed on the results obtained for SN1987A in more than fifteen years of assiduous monitoring with both IUE and HST. It is shown that ultraviolet data have led to the clarification of a number of crucial issues such as the nature of the progenitor and its evolution and the recovery of the ultraviolet echo of the explosion. The observations made with HST show its great potential for exceptional results in the study of supernovae, both in the local Universe and at high redshifts.
