" Shock breakout survey with Hyper Suprime-Cam "
Shock breakout is the bolometrically brightest phenomenon in supernovae.
Although it is theoretically proposed in 1970s and is suggested to be a
probe of the high-redshift universe, its observation is difficult due to
the short duration and X-ray/ultraviolet-peaked spectra.
We had constructed theoretical models of shock breakouts in 2009 and 2011
and demonstrated that the shock breakout can be efficiently detected in
optical band with Hyper Suprime-Cam. Thus, we have started the shock
breakout survey with Hyper Suprime-Cam from Jul 1-2, 2014. In this talk,
I will introduce our survey strategy, transient finding system, and
Seminars are also held at JAC,
