    Theory predicts that massive galaxies are surrounded by a reservoir of gas. In the absence of feedback effects from supernova or AGN, this gas should cool, accrete onto the galaxy and form stars. Without a continuous supply of gas, most star forming galaxies would run out of gas on timescale of...

    Mechanisms of explosion for supernovae are considered. It is shown that large-scale convection is the crucial physical process for evolution of explosion. Neutrino luminosity is estimated for SN II. The structure of supernova envelope and jet was calculated.

    Some observations suggest that very massive stars experience extreme mass-loss episodes shortly before they explode as supernovae, as do several models. Establishing a causal connection between these mass-loss episodes and the final explosion would provide a novel way to study pre-supernova...
