The BATSE Gamma-Ray Burst Spectral Catalog. I. High Time Resolution Spectroscopy of Bright Bursts Using High Energy Resolution Data
This is the first in a series of gamma-ray burst spectroscopy catalogs from the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, each covering a different aspect ofExpand

Identification of two classes of gamma-ray bursts
We have studied the duration distribution of the gamma-ray bursts of the first BATSE catalog. We find a bimodality in the distribution, which separates GRBs into two classes: short events (less thanExpand

THE fermi gamma-ray burst monitor
The Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor (GBM) will significantly augment the science return from the Fermi Observatory in the study of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The primary objective of GBM is to extend theExpand

The Complete Spectral Catalog of Bright BATSE Gamma-Ray Bursts
We present a systematic spectral analysis of 350 bright gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) observed with the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE; ~30 keV-2 MeV) with high temporal and spectralExpand

An Ordinary Short Gamma-Ray Burst with Extraordinary Implications: Fermi-GBM Detection of GRB 170817A
On August 17, 2017 at 12:41:06 UTC the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) detected and triggered on the short gamma-ray burst GRB 170817A. Approximately 1.7 s prior to this GRB, the LaserExpand

Understanding the Long-Term Spectral Variability of Cygnus X-1 with Burst and Transient Source Experiment and All-Sky Monitor Observations
We present a comprehensive analysis of all observations of Cyg X-1 by the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE; 20-300 keV) and by the Rossi X-Ray TimingExpand

Localization and broadband follow-up of the gravitational-wave transient GW150914
A gravitational-wave (GW) transient was identified in data recorded by the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors on 2015 September 14. The event, initiallyExpand

Orbital, precessional and flaring variability of Cygnus X-1
We present the results of a 2.5-yr multiwavelength monitoring programme of Cygnus X-l, making use of hard and soft X-ray data, optical spectroscopy, UBVJHK photometry and radio data. In particular,Expand

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
