There is a great deal of primary and specialist literature on supernovae, with a great many scientific groups around the world focusing on the phenomenon and related subdisciplines, but what is missing is a comprehensive and balanced reference work that presents the current state of knowledge in the broad field of supernovae, to be used as a basis for further work and study by graduate students, astronomers and astrophysicists working in close/related disciplines, and established groups. This handbook closes that gap at last. At present the study of supernovae encompasses a number of distinct subdisciplines including stellar types, progenitors, stellar evolution, nucleosynthesis of elements, supernova types, neutron stars and pulsars, black holes, swept up interstellar matter, cosmic rays, neutrinos from supernovae, supernova observations in different wavelengths, interstellar molecules and dust. All of the latest research in these areas is gathered in this collection to create a definitive source book on supernovae, their remnants and related topics
