1995A&A...297...49P The spatial distribution of supernovae in paired and interacting galaxies A.R. Petrosian and M. Turatto Byurakan Astrophysical Observatory, Armenia Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova, vicolo dell'Osservatorio 5, I-35122 Padova, Italy Received 7 April 1994/Accepted 13 October 1994 Abstract. In order to investigate the location of supernovae (SNe) in paired and interacting galaxies, the 54 supernovae discovered up to May 1993 in 14 Isolated Pairs of Galaxies and in 32 Interacting Systems were taken as a sample and studied. The whole sample of SNe, as well as a subsample formed of type II and Ib SNe, whose progenitors are young massive stars, do not appear in any one particular direction with respect to the companion. In paired and interacting galaxies, the radial distribution of type Ib and II SNe peaks more toward the galaxy centers than it does in isolated galaxies, indicating an enhanced Star Formation Rate (SFR) around the nuclei and in the inner disks. The distribution of SNIa appear similar in both samples, confirming that their progenitors are not the same as those of SII and Ib. The SN rates are related to galaxy luminosity and, as expected, the discovery of SNe is twice more frequent in the brighter galaxy of the pair than in fainter ones. We did not find any relation between the locations of SNe in parent galaxies, the total Star Formation activity and the kinematics of paired and interacting galaxies. Key words: galaxies: interaction - galaxies: starburst - super-novae: general
