Observations have been made with the University of Durham Mark 6 telescope of SN 1006 and SN 1998bw. Limits to VHE gamma ray emission from these objects have been derived. The upper limit from SN 1006 may be in conflict with the measurement made with the CANGAROO telescope. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    There is evidence for production of relativistic electrons and amplification of magnetic fields in young supernova remnants. In a recent publication we have given a model for radio emission from SN 1993J [1]. In this paper we discuss theories of electron acceleration in supernova remnants such...

    Recent high-energy detections of radio-quiet neutron stars are changing our view of central sources in young supernova remnants. There are at least several classes of sources that make up this radio-quiet population: rotation-powered pulsars with magnetic fields around 10[sup 12] G, non-rotation...

    We investigate a possibility that non-thermal X-ray emission in a supernova remnant(SNR) is produced by jitter radiation, which is the analogue of synchrotron radiation in small-scale random magnetic fields. We can fit the multi-wavelength data of SNRs RX J1713.7-3946 (G347.3-0.5) and RX...

    We carry out series of numerical simulations on the magnetorotational supernovae in order to study about recoil of so-called “magnetars”, highly magnetized slowly rotating neutron stars. We assume that the core initially rotates rapidly and is strongly magnetized. Presumed initial...

    We show three-dimensional numerical simulations on the core collapse of a rotating massive star threaded by strong magnetic fields. The initial magnetic field is nearly uniform in the core and inclined with respect to the rotation axis. We have made 17 models having different angular velocity...

    Core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) are the final fate of the massive stars, but their explosion mechanisms are still uncertain. One of the clues to the solution of the explosion mechanism is to examine the asymmetric effects. This is because most of observed CCSNe are asymmetric explosions. One of...

    The formation of neutron stars in the closest binary systems (Porb < 12 h) gives the young neutron star/pulsar a high rotational velocity arid energy. The presence of a magnetic field of 3 × 1011 - 3 × 1013 G, as is observed for radio pulsars, enables the neutron star to transfer...
