Local SN studies
Bright, nearby SNe are interesting targets for
detailed studies. Some of the aims of such research are:
- Better understanding of the nature of SNe, their progenitors,
environments and evolution.
- Calibrating local SNe for use in high-z cosmological studies.
Our group studies local SNe using the Wise Observatory 1m telescope,
in collaboration with other research groups around the world.
Our main projects are:
- Hypernova 2002ap in M74
- Multi-color monitoring of the peculiar type Ia SN 2000cx in NGC 524
- Target of opportunity spectroscopy of bright SNe
