Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY, volume 99)


The statistics of SN discoveries is used to reveal selection biases of past and current SN searches and to gain insight on the progenitor scenarios for the different SN types. We also report estimates of the SN rate per unit mass in galaxies of different types and on the first attempts to study the evolution of the supernova rate with redshift.
