"Numerical Modeling of the Early Light Curves of Type IIP Supernovae", submitted to ApJ, arXiv:1603.08530.
We show, using SNEC, that there is a tight correlation between Type IIP (plateau) core-collapse supernova rise times (in g-band) and the radii of their progenitor red supergiant stars. See below figure! SNEC and all inputs to our models are available as part of our open-science initiative here on stellarcollapse.org: https://stellarcollapse.org/Morozova2016
