The first BATSE gamma-ray burst catalog
The Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) has triggered on 1637 cosmic gamma-ray bursts between 1991 April 19 and 1996 August 29. These eventsExpand

The Third BATSE Gamma-Ray Burst Catalog
The Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) has triggered on 1122 cosmic gamma-ray bursts between 1991 April 19 and 1994 September 19. These eventsExpand

BATSE observations of gamma-ray burst spectra. I: Spectral diversity
We studied the time-averaged gamma-ray burst spectra accumulated by the spectroscopy detectors of the Burst and Transient Source Experiment. The spectra are described well at low energy by aExpand

Discovery of the Orbit of the X-Ray Pulsar OAO 1657-415
Timing observations of the 38 s accreting X-ray pulsar OAO 1657-415 made with the BATSE large-area detectors on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory have revealed a binary orbit with an X-ray eclipse byExpand

A new type of transient high-energy source in the direction of the Galactic Centre
SOURCES of high-energy (>20 keV) bursts fall into two distinct types: the non-repeating γ-ray bursters1, several thousand of which have been detected but whose origin remains unknown, and the softExpand

Time evolution of terrestrial gamma ray flashes
[1] We present a study of the time evolution of TGFs observed by both RHESSI and BATSE and compare the data with Monte Carlo simulations of relativistic runaway electron avalanches that record theExpand

First results on terrestrial gamma ray flashes from the Fermi Gamma‐ray Burst Monitor
[1] The Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope detected 12 intense terrestrial gamma ray flashes (TGFs) during its first year of observation. Typical maximum energiesExpand

Observations of 4U 1700-37 with BATSE
The eclipsing binary X-ray source 4U 1700-37 has been continually monitored by the BATSE experiment on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory since the spring of 1991. Using source measurements at timesExpand

The rarity of soft γ-ray repeaters deduced from reactivation of SGR1806 – 20
ONLY two different types of γ-ray transient sources are presently known: over one thousand γ-ray bursters (GRBs) and only three soft γ-ray repeaters (SGRs). The latter are distinguished by theirExpand
