Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/296178
Description: The accelerated expansion of the Universe was proposed through the use of Type-Ia supernovae (SNe) as standard candles. The standardization depends on an empirical correlation between the stretch/colo ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/283845
Description: We use photoionization modeling to assess the binary nature of the central stars of NGC 2392 and NGC 6026. If they are close binaries, they are potential Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) progenitors if the ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/296266
Description: We show that, by appealing to a Quark-Nova (QN) in a tight binary system containing a massive neutron star and a CO white dwarf (WD), a Type Ia explosion could occur. The QN ejecta collides with the W ... More
