dc.description.abstract Supernovae are the cosmic fireworks that mark the death of stars, wherein heavy elements are forged and dispersed, leading to the galactic enrichment of the Universe. In core-collapse supernovae, the collapse of the inert iron core in massive stars paves the way for the catastrophic explosion. This gives rise to a range of observational signatures due to the diverse nature of the pre-explosion star and its environment. The decoding of the progenitor’s properties and its immediate environment therefore calls for a comprehensive study of these events. The underlying quest of most current studies in this field is to map each of these explosions to a progenitor system in order to construct a complete picture of the theory of stellar evolution. en_US
