    • Explaining the Type Ia supernova PTF 11kx with a violent prompt merger scenario 

      García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Torres Gil, Santiago; Camacho Díaz, Judit; Soker, Noam; Kashi, Amit (2013-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      We argue that the multiple shells of circumstellar material (CSM) and the supernovae (SNe) ejecta interaction with the CSM starting 59 d after the explosion of the Type Ia SN PTF 11kx are best described by a violent prompt ...
    • Smoothed particle hydrodynamics simulations of the core-degenerate scenario for Type Ia supernovae 

      Aznar Siguan, Gabriela; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Lorén Aguilar, Pablo; Soker, Noam; Kashi, Amit (2015-07-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The core-degenerate scenario for Type Ia supernovae involves the merger of the hot core of an asymptotic giant branch star and a white dwarf, and might contribute a non-negligible fraction of all thermonuclear supernovae. ...
