Abstract
We examine the dynamics and X-ray spectrum of the young Type Ia supernova remnant 0509–67.5 in the context of the recent results obtained from the optical spectroscopy of its light echo. Our goal is to estimate the kinetic energy of the supernova explosion using Chandra and XMM-Newton observations of the supernova remnant, thus placing the birth event of 0509–67.5 in the sequence of dim-to-bright Type Ia supernovae. We base our analysis on a standard grid of one-dimensional delayed detonatio...
