The Swift gamma-ray burst mission
TLDR
The Swift mission will determine the origin of GRB, classify GRBs and search for new types, study the interaction of the ultrarelativistic outflows of GRBs with their surrounding medium, and use GRBs to study the early universe out to z >10. Expand
Confidence limits for small numbers of events in astrophysical data
The calculation of limits for small numbers of astronomical counts is based on standard equations derived from Poisson and binomial statistics; although the equations are straightforward, theirExpand
The Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) on the SWIFT Midex Mission
Abstracthe burst alert telescope (BAT) is one of three instruments on the Swift MIDEX spacecraft to study gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The BAT first detects the GRB and localizes the burst direction toExpand
FERMI LARGE AREA TELESCOPE FIRST SOURCE CATALOG
We present a catalog of high-energy gamma-ray sources detected by the Large Area Telescope (LAT), the primary science instrument on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi), during the first 11Expand
Methods and results of an automatic analysis of a complete sample of Swift-XRT observations of GRBs
We present a homogeneous X-ray analysis of all 318 gamma-ray bursts detected by the X-ray telescope (XRT) on the Swift satellite up to 2008 July 23; this represents the largest sample of X-ray GRBExpand
THE SPECTRAL ENERGY DISTRIBUTION OF FERMI BRIGHT BLAZARS
We have conducted a detailed investigation of the broadband spectral properties of the gamma-ray selected blazars of the Fermi LAT Bright AGN Sample (LBAS). By combining our accurately estimatedExpand
Fermi Large Area Telescope Second Source Catalog
We present the second catalog of high-energy γ-ray sources detected by the Large Area Telescope (LAT), the primary science instrument on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi), derived from dataExpand
The INTEGRAL mission
The ESA observatory INTEGRAL (International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory) is dedicated to the fine spectroscopy (2.5 keV FWHM @ 1 MeV) and fine imaging (angular resolution: 12 arcmin FWHM) ofExpand
An online repository of Swift/XRT light curves of Γ-ray bursts
Context. Swift data are revolutionising our understanding of Gamma Ray Bursts. Since bursts fade rapidly, it is desirable to create and disseminate accurate light curves rapidly. Aims. To provide theExpand
Spectrum of the isotropic diffuse gamma-ray emission derived from first-year Fermi Large Area Telescope data.
TLDR
The first Fermi Large Area Telescope measurements of the so-called "extragalactic" diffuse gamma-ray emission (EGB) are reported, finding the spectrum is featureless, less intense, and softer than that derived from EGRET data. Expand
