Gamma-Ray Burst in the Swift/Fermi Era and Beyond
e Swift and Fermi satellites have been observing gammaray bursts (GRBs), which are short-lived and intense flashes of gamma-rays associated with the death/explosion of massive stars and/or compact
The luminous host galaxy, faint supernova and rapid afterglow rebrightening of GRB 100418A
Context. Long gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) give us the chance to study both their extreme physics and the star-forming galaxies in which they form. Aims. GRB 100418A, at a redshift of z = 0.6239, had a
Open-Design for a Smart Cover of a Night-Time Telescope for Day-Time Use
This article proposes the design and construction of a smart cover that opens and closes according to the time of day, and has been parameterized, so that it can be adapted to telescopes of any size.

Mirrored mixture PDF models for scientific image modelling
This paper deals with the modelling of high bit-depth images acquired by astronomical cameras using the discrete wavelet transform and the undecimated discrete wavelet transform for image


Hypernova Signatures in the Late Rebrightening of GRB 050525A
We report observations of GRB 050525A, for which a Gemini North spectrum shows its redshift to be z = 0.606. This is the third closest long GRB discovered by Swift. We observed its afterglow using
Four Years of Real-Time GRB Followup by BOOTES-1B (2005–2008)
Four years of BOOTES-1B GRB follow-up history are summarised for the first time in the form of a table. The successfully followed events are described case by case. Further, the data are used to show
The host-galaxy response to the afterglow of GRB 100901A
For gamma-ray burst 100901A, we have obtained Gemini-North and Very Large Telescope optical afterglow spectra at four epochs: 1 h, 1 d, 3 d and 1 week after the burst, thanks to the afterglow
The Properties of the 2175 A Extinction Feature Discovered in GRB Afterglows
The unequivocal, spectroscopic detection of the 2175 Å bump in extinction curves outside the Local Group is rare. To date, the properties of the bump have been examined in only two gamma-ray burst
GRB 090313: X-shooter's first shot at a gamma-ray burst
Context. X-shooter is the first second-generation instrument to become operative at the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT). It is a broad-band medium-resolution spectrograph designed with gamma-ray burst
Comprehensive multiwavelength modelling of the afterglow of GRB 050525A
The Swift era has posed a challenge to the standard blast-wave model of gamma-ray burst (GRB) afterglows. The key observational features expected within the model are rarely observed, such as the

    Gamma-ray Bursts: 15 Years of GRB Afterglows
  • 2020
We analyze two X-shooter spectra of the GRB 120327A afterglow, acquired    2.1 and    30 hrs after the trigger. The ISM in the GRB host galaxy at z  = 2.8145 is extremely rich in absorption features,
Time resolved spectroscopy of GRB 100418A and its host galaxy with X‐shooter
GRB 100418A was an intermediate duration GRB detected by Swift. It showed an initially dim optical afterglow that had a late increase in brightness, reaching its maximum several hours after the burst
MAGIC observation of the GRB 080430 afterglow
Context. Gamma-ray bursts are cosmological sources emitting radiation from the gamma-rays to the radio band. Substantial observational e orts have been devoted to the study of gamma-ray bursts during
Discovery of an X-ray afterglow associated with the γ-ray burst of 28 February 1997
Establishing the nature of γ-ray bursts is one of the greatest challenges in high-energy astrophysics. The distribution of these bursts is isotropic across the sky, but inhomogeneous in space, with a
