[45.15] Modelling the Spectra of SN 1998bw from a Jet Powered Explosion Model

E. J. Lentz (U. Georgia), E. Baron (U. Oklahoma), P. H. Hauschildt (Hamburg Obs.)

Supernova 1998bw and several other extreme Type~Ic supernovae show strong evidence of asymmetry. We have segmented the jet induced model for these objects by Maeda & Nomoto into several slices and modelled each of slices as independent objects. We compare a sequence of early spectra of SN~1998bw to the spectra of these slice and also to a composit spectrum made from all of the segments.
