Shock Breakout of Type II Plateau Supernova
Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union
Type II-plateau supernovae (SNe II-P) are fainter than Type Ia SNe and thus have so far been observed only at z < 1. We introduce shock breakout and propose a distant SN II-P survey at z > 1 with shock breakout. The first observation of shock breakout from the rising phase is reported in 2008. We first construct a theoretical model reproducing the UV-optical light curves (LCs) of the first example and demonstrate that the peak apparent g-band magnitude of the shock breakout would be m g ∼ 26.4doi:10.1017/s1743921312013609 fatcat:5cn5pr3z4nhppm666pwcvpg5tu
