Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1196048
Description: The metallicity of the progenitor system producing a type Ia supernova (SN Ia) could play a role in its maximum luminosity, as suggested by theoretical predictions. We present an observational study t ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1260209
Description: Context. H II regions in galaxies are the sites of star formation, so they are special places for understanding the build-up of stellar mass in the universe. The line ratios of this ionized gas are fr ... More
