Unusual supernovae and alternative power sources (Kasen)

I) Observed peculiar supernovae

a) Superluminous Supernovae (Classes Type I, Type II)
b) Dim and/or Rapidly Fading Supernovae
1. SNIax events,
2. Calcium rich Transients,
3. 02bj-like
c) Luminous red Novae

II) Powering Supernova Light Curves

Needs coordinated with Bersten & Mazzali and Zampieri articles. Arnett model treatment must be in the Chapter and we should avoid full repetition.

a) basic scalings of peak luminosity and timescale
b) simple Arnett-like models

III) Super-luminous SNe and alternative Power Sources

a) radioactivity, pair-instability SNe
b) Interaction/pulsational pair instabilit
c) Magnetar Powering
d) Black Hole Accretion

IV) Dim and/or Rapidly Fading Supernovae

a) White dwarf explosions and unusual radioactivities
1. Failed Deflagrations
2 .Ia supernovae
3. acretion induced collapse

b) Massive Star explosions
1. massive star outbursts
2. fallback supernovae
3. Neutrino-mass loss supernovae


Extent of Section II will depend on overlap with other articles, in particular those of Bersten & Mazzali and Zampieri

Section IIb will refer to discussion in Blinnikov

Article will focus more on super-luminous supernovae than other sorts of peculiar events. If space is limited, will reduce or eliminate discussion of luminous red novae and associated mechanisms (sections Ic, IVb1, IVb3)
