1. The metamorphosis of supernova SN 2008D/XRF 080109: a link between supernovae and GRBs/hypernovae.

    Science 321(5893):1185 (2008) PMID 18653846

    The only supernovae (SNe) to show gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) or early x-ray emission thus far are overenergetic, broad-lined type Ic SNe (hypernovae, HNe). Recently, SN 2008D has shown several unusual features: (i) weak x-ray flash (XRF), (ii) an early, narrow optical peak, (iii) disappearance of t...
  2. A very energetic supernova associated with the gamma-ray burst of 29 March 2003.

    Nature 423(6942):847 (2003) PMID 12815425

    Over the past five years evidence has mounted that long-duration (>2 s) gamma-ray bursts (GRBs)-the most luminous of all astronomical explosions-signal the collapse of massive stars in our Universe. This evidence was originally based on the probable association of one unusual GRB with a supernov...

  4. The link between soft X-ray transients and ER Ursae Majoris stars

    New Astronomy 2(5):429 (1997)

    There are now at least five sources classified as Soft X-ray Transients (SXTs) which show light curve modulations during their active states that are reminiscent of superhumps in SU UMa stars. We compare the morphology of the humps in SXTs with those in SU UMa stars and find that they ...
