Speaker: Alicia Soderberg (Harvard)

Title:Supernova Forensics

Abstract:For decades, observational studies of supernova (SN) explosions have focused almost exclusively on the optical emission that dominates their bolometric luminosity. Yet many of the leading breakthroughs in our understanding of supernovae have been enabled by observations at other wavelengths. I will review the new results from our Harvard/CfA "Supernova Forensics" research group aimed at answering some of the basic outstanding questions of supernova progenitors stars and their explosions (who, when, where, why, how?)
