Ori Fox (n/a)
Recent observations suggest the SN Type IIn subclass may exhibit late-time infrared emission from warm dust more than typical CCSNe. If the dust did not form freshly in the SN explosion, it likely originated in either a steady wind or eruptive ev ...

Ian Czekala (TBD)
With the rise of time-domain astronomy and the advent of survey facilities such as Pan-STARRS, Palomar Transient Factory, and, in the future, LSST, exotic optical transients are now being found in ever-increasing numbers. These events can be disti ...
2011 The Astrophysics of Intermediate-Luminosity Red Transients
Romek Tylenda (n/a)
After presenting the main observational facts on V1309 Scorpii, I will discuss recent results on the object both from observations and theoretical studies. I particular I will discuss the evolutionary status of the progenitor following a recent st ...

Stellar mergers can occur in regions with high stellar densities and in close binaries as result of a contact phase. The first channel has gained considerable interest in studies of the dynamics of stellar systems. The second channel - binary mer ...

Amit Kashi (Technion)
Similarities between Intermediate Luminosity Optical Transients (ILOTs) and major eruptions of Luminous Blue Variables (like the 19th-century great eruption of Eta Carinae), suggest that a similar mechanism powers both. We suggest that this proces ...

Roberta Humphreys (University of Minnesota)
The evidence for episodic and high-mass-loss events among the evolved stars is observed across the upper HR diagram. These objects include the Luminous Blue Variables (LBVs), the warm and cool hypergiants such as IRC+10420 and VY CMa, and giant ...
2011 The Astrophysics of Intermediate-Luminosity Red Transients
Romuald Tylenda  (Copernicus Astronomical Center, Torun)
After a brief discussion of the basic astrophysics of contact binaries and red transients, I will concentrate on the eruption of V1309 Sco. In particular, archival photometric measurements of the V1309 Sco progenitor obtained in the OGLE project d ...

2011 The Astrophysics of Intermediate-Luminosity Red Transients
Romek Tylenda (N. Copernicus Astronomical Center)
I will attempt to present a consistent scenario on the evolution of V838 Mon and its B-type companion since the discovery of the latter. The appearance of [Fe II] emission lines in 2005-2007, the eclipse-like event in 2006, and the gradual fading ...
2011 The Astrophysics of Intermediate-Luminosity Red Transients
Vitaly Goranskij (Sternberg Astronomical Institute, Moscow University)
V838 Mon is a peculiar red nova with an outburst accompanied by a light echo. Images of the light echo were taken on 29 nights between October 4, 2002 and October 21, 2009. The structure of the dust nebula surrounding V838 Mon and illuminated by t ...

Rodolfo Montez (n/a)
We present a series of X-ray observations of the most famous red transient, V838 Monocerotis. The observations span eight years (from 2003 to 2011) and, hence, provide tests of hypotheses for the origin of V838 Mon's well-studied 2002 outburst. Th ...

Roberta Humphreys (University of Minnesota)
Our multi-wavelength photometry and moderate-resolution spectroscopy obtained from maximum light to more than a year later present a photometric and spectroscopic record of the transient's post eruption and recovery. The spectral-energy distribut ...

Christopher Kochanek (The Ohio State University)
SN2008S and the 2008 NGC 300 OT were explosive transients of stars self-obscured by very dense, dusty stellar winds. An explosive transient with an unobscured shock break-out luminosity of order 10^10 Lsun is required to render the transients opti ...

Margaret Meixner (Space Telescope Science Institute)
I report on results on the intermediate-luminosity transient, SN 2008S, which was serendipitously observed in one of our monitored fields in our supernovae project SEEDS (Survey for Evolution of Emission from Dust in SNe). I compare its near-infra ...

Mansi Kasliwal (Caltech)
The Palomar Transient Factory (PTF) is annually discovering two new members of the family of intermediate-luminosity red transients (also known as luminous red novae). Here I present extensive multi-band follow-up of two such events, PTF10fqs and ...
