J/ApJ/723/47                IfA Deep SN rates                    (Rodney+, 2010)

Revised supernova rates from the IfA Deep Survey. Rodney S.A., Tonry J.L. <Astrophys. J., 723, 47-53 (2010)> =2010ApJ...723...47R
ADC_Keywords: Redshifts ; Supernovae Keywords: supernovae: general Abstract: The IfA Deep Survey uncovered ∼130 thermonuclear supernova (TN SN, i.e., Type Ia) candidates at redshifts from z=0.1 out to beyond z=1. The TN SN explosion rates derived from these data have been controversial, conflicting with evidence emerging from other surveys. This work revisits the IfA Deep Survey to re-evaluate the photometric evidence. Applying the SOFT (Supernova Ontology with Fuzzy Templates) program to the light curves of all SN candidates, we derive new classification grades and redshift estimates. We find a volumetric rate for z∼0.5 that is substantially smaller than the originally published values, bringing the revised IfA Deep rate into good agreement with other surveys. With our improved photometric analysis techniques, we are able to confidently extend the rate measurements to higher redshifts and we find a steadily increasing TN SN rate, with no indication of a peak out to z=1.05. Description: The IfA (Institute for Astronomy) Deep Survey was the first survey to take full advantage of the wide field imaging cameras of Mauna Kea to allow for both SN discovery and simultaneous follow-up observations. Using the 12k camera on the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) and Suprime-Cam on Subaru, the survey covered five fields with a total survey area of 2.5deg2. Each field was revisited approximately every 10 days for observations in the R, I, and Z bands. The survey design and operations are described in greater detail by Barris et al. (2004, Cat. J/ApJ/602/571) and Liu et al. (2002ApJ...568L.107L). File Summary:
