Supernovæ and Transients with Euclid and the European ELT

  • Isobel Hook (a1) (a2)

Abstract

The prospects are described for studies of large samples of supernovæ and other variable objects with two proposed future facilities: (1) the European Extremely Large Telescope, a general-purpose 40-m-class ground-based optical-IR telescope, and (2) Euclid, an M-class mission within ESA's Cosmic Vision programme, primarily for cosmology. The capabilities and status of the two facilities are briefly described. Their suitability for the study of time-varying objects in general, and of supernovæ in particular, is discussed. It is shown that Euclid has the potential for NIR imaging of a few thousand Type Ia supernovæ to intermediate z, while the E-ELT will be capable of spectroscopic and classification measurements of Type Ia supernovæ to z=4.
