The Progenitors of Recent Core-Collapse Supernovae
Nancy Elias de la Rosa (Caltech)

N. Elias-Rosa (SSC/Caltech, USA) et al.

We will present the results of our analysis of Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and deep ground-based images, to isolate the massive progenitor stars of several recent core-collapse supernovae (SNe). The identification of the progenitors is facilitated in a few cases by high-precision astrometry based on our HST ToO imaging of the SNe at late times.
