Black Hole Formation in Supernovae: Prospects of Unveiling Fallback Emission
We review the formation mechanism of neutron stars and black holes in corecollapse supernovae and the conditions for establishing a copious fallback of stellar material onto the newly born compact remnant. Accretion from the base of the envelope is capable both to turn the neutron star into a black hole and to give rise to detectable emission of radiation. The potential of unveiling the emission from fallback onto a black hole and its observational implications are discussed in detail.
