56Ni is an important indicator of the supernova explosions, which characterizes light curves. Nevertheless, rather than 56Ni, explosion energy has often been paid attention from explosion mechanism community, since it is, at ...

We investigate remnant neutron star masses (in particular, the minimum allowed mass) by performing advanced stellar evolution calculations and neutrino-radiation hydrodynamics simulations for core-collapse supernova explosions. We find that, based...

In the coming Large Synoptic Survey Telescope era, we will observe O(100) of lensed supernovae (SNe). In this paper, we investigate the possibility for predicting time and sky position of an SN using strong lensing. We find that it will be possibl...

We investigate the nucleosynthesis that occurs during the two-dimensional neutrino-driven explosion of ultra-stripped Type Ic supernovae evolved from 1.45 and 1.5 M CO stars. These supernovae explode with an explosion energy of ̃10<SUP...

The 1-70 keV persistent spectra of 15 magnetars, observed with Suzaku from 2006 to 2013, were studied as a complete sample. Combined with early NuSTAR observations of four hard X-ray emitters, nine objects showed a hard power-law emission dominati...

Nascent neutron stars (NSs) with millisecond periods and magnetic fields in excess of 1016 Gauss can drive highly energetic and asymmetric explosions known as magnetar-powered supernovae. These exotic explosions are one theoretical inte...
Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society      Sep 2016   [Refereed]
We report results from a series of three-dimensional (3D) rotational core-collapse simulations for 11.2 and 27 M stars employing neutrino transport scheme by the isotropic diffusion source approximation. By changing the initial strengt...
Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society      Aug 2016   [Refereed]
We investigate a method to construct parametrized progenitor models for core-collapse supernova simulations. Different from all modern core-collapse supernova studies, which rely on progenitor models from stellar evolution calculations, we follow ...

By performing neutrino-radiation hydrodynamic simulations in spherical symmetry (1D) and axial symmetry (2D) with different progenitor models by Woosley &amp; Heger from 12 to 100 M, we find that all 1D runs fail to produce an explosio...
Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society      Dec 2015   [Refereed]
We study explosion characteristics of ultra-stripped supernovae (SNe), which are candidates of SNe generating binary neutron stars (NSs). As a first step, we perform stellar evolutionary simulations of bare carbon-oxygen cores of mass from 1.45 to...

I performed core-collapse supernova simulations using multi-dimensional neutrino-radiation-hydrodynamic code. I investigated the following two topics; i) the impact of nuclear equation of state, and ii) the dependence of neutrino heating efficienc...
