Gamma-Ray Burst Peak Duration as a Function of Energy
Gamma-ray burst time histories often consist of many peaks. These peaks tend to be narrower at higher energy. If gamma-ray bursts are cosmological, the energy dependence of gamma-ray burst timescales
Temporal and spectral characteristics of terrestrial gamma flashes
We have analyzed the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) high-resolution timing data for 13 terrestrial gamma flashes (TGFs) to better characterize this newly identified phenomenon, which
DETECTION OF SIGNATURE CONSISTENT WITH COSMOLOGICAL TIME DILATION IN GAMMA-RAY BURSTS
If gamma-ray bursters are at cosmological distances as suggested by their isotropic distribution on the sky and by their number-intensity relation then the burst profiles will be stretched in time,
Short versus long gamma-ray bursts: a comprehensive study of energetics and prompt gamma-ray correlations
We present the results of a comprehensive study of the luminosity function, energetics, prompt gamma-ray correlations, and classification methodology of short-hard and long-soft GRBs (SGRBs and
Astrophysics Source Code Library, version 3.1
TLDR
Some of the new capabilities of the ASCL were shown, including participation in the 3rd Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences and a request from the AAS to form a special interest group on software publishing.
Bounds on spectral dispersion from Fermi-detected gamma ray bursts.
TLDR
It is shown that significant photon bunches in GRB 090510A, possibly classic GRB pulses, are remarkably brief, an order of magnitude shorter in duration than any previously claimed temporal feature in this energy range, suggesting that spacetime is smooth at energies near and slightly above the Planck mass.
The Pulse Scale Conjecture and the Case of BATSE Trigger 2193
The pulses that compose gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are hypothesized to have the same shape at all energies, differing only by scale factors in time and amplitude. This "pulse scale conjecture" is
Gamma-Ray Bursts Are Time-asymmetric
A simple test for time asymmetry is devised and carried out on the brightest gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) detected by the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on board the Compton Gamma Ray
