Bottom panel: comparison of our model TARDIS spectrum, in blue, to a spectrum of SN 2015H, in black, at 6 days post r-band maximum. Our TARDIS model provides good agreement with many of the features observed in SN 2015H. In the top panel, we colour code a histogram of luminosity per wavelength bin to the atomic number of the element responsible for the last interaction with an escaped Monte Carlo packet. Features below/above the dashed line show the relative contribution of these elements in removing from or adding to the observed flux during the simulation (based on the analysis of interaction histories of escaping MC packets). Packets that do not experience line interactions within the SN ejecta are shown in either black or grey. Black indicates where packets have passed through the entire model region with no interaction, while grey packets have only experienced scattering via free electrons. Dotted vertical lines indicate features for which we measure a velocity, (shown in Fig. 9). Dashed vertical lines show features that are discussed further in the main text.
