Zhang et al. propose to redefine the true γ-ray burst (GRB) central engine activity duration, , by considering the contributions from the prompt γ-ray emission, X-ray flare, and internal plateau features. With a comprehensive study of a large sample of Swift GRBs, it is shown that the distribution in the observer frame consists of a bimodal feature, suggesting the existence of a new population of ultra-long GRBs. In this work, we make a series of further studies on : we update the Swift GRB… 

The Shallow Decay Segment of GRB X-Ray Afterglow Revisited

Based on the early-year observations from Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory, Liang et al. performed a systematic analysis for the shallow decay component of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) X-ray afterglow, in

The optical/NIR afterglow of GRB 111209A: Complex yet not unprecedented

Context. Afterglows of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are simple in the most basic model, but can show many complex features. The ultra-long duration GRB 111209A, one of the longest GRBs ever detected, also

Prompt Emission of Gamma-Ray Bursts from the Wind of Newborn Millisecond Magnetars: A Case Study of GRB 160804A

In this paper, we revisit the scenario that an internal gradual magnetic dissipation taking place within the wind from a newborn millisecond magnetar can be responsible for gamma-ray burst (GRB)

Characteristics of Two-episode Emission Patterns in Fermi Long Gamma-Ray Bursts

Two-episode emission components separated by quiescent gaps in the prompt emission of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been observed in the Swift era, but there is a lack of spectral information due to

Outflows from black hole hyperaccretion systems: short and long-short gamma-ray bursts and ‘quasi-supernovae’

The detections of some long gamma-ray bursts (LGRBs) relevant to mergers of neutron star (NS)-NS or black hole (BH)-NS, as well as some short gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs) probably produced by collapsars,

External Shock in a Multi-bursting Gamma-Ray Burst: Energy Injection Phase Induced by the Later Launched Ejecta

Central engines of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) may be intermittent and launch several episodes of ejecta separated by a long quiescent interval. In this scenario, an external shock is formed due to the

A Comprehensive Analysis of Swift XRT Data. II. Diverse Physical Origins of the Shallow Decay Segment

The origin of the shallow decay segment in Swift XRT light curves remains a puzzle. We analyze the properties of this segment with a sample of 53 long Swift GRBs detected before 2007 February. We

Swift Observations of GRB 070110: An Extraordinary X-Ray Afterglow Powered by the Central Engine

We present a detailed analysis of Swift multiwavelength observations of GRB 070110 and its remarkable afterglow. The early X-ray light curve, interpreted as the tail of the prompt emission, displays

THE ULTRA-LONG GRB 111209A. II. PROMPT TO AFTERGLOW AND AFTERGLOW PROPERTIES

The “ultra-long” gamma-ray burst GRB 111209A at redshift z = 0.677 is the longest GRB ever observed thus far, with a rest frame prompt emission duration of ∼4 hr. In order to explain the burst

GRB 091024A AND THE NATURE OF ULTRA-LONG GAMMA-RAY BURSTS

We present a broadband study of gamma-ray burst (GRB) 091024A within the context of other ultra-long-duration GRBs. An unusually long burst detected by Konus–Wind (KW), Swift, and Fermi, GRB 091024A

A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF LONG AND SHORT GRBS. I. OVERLAPPING PROPERTIES

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are classified into long and short categories based on their durations. Broadband studies suggest that these two categories of objects roughly correspond to two different

On the average gamma-ray burst X-ray flaring activity

Gamma-ray burst X-ray flares are believed to mark the late time activity of the central engine. We compute the temporal evolution of the average flare luminosity hLi in the common rest frame energy

A NEW POPULATION OF ULTRA-LONG DURATION GAMMA-RAY BURSTS

We present comprehensive multiwavelength observations of three gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with durations of several thousand seconds. We demonstrate that these events are extragalactic transients; in

ARE ULTRA-LONG GAMMA-RAY BURSTS DIFFERENT?

The discovery of a number of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with duration exceeding 1000 s has opened the debate on whether these bursts form a new class of sources, the so-called ultra-long GRBs, or if

RELATION BETWEEN THE INTRINSIC AND OBSERVED CENTRAL ENGINE ACTIVITY TIME: IMPLICATIONS FOR ULTRA-LONG GRBs

The gamma-ray burst (GRB) central engine intrinsic activity time T ce ?> is usually described through either the γ-ray duration T90 or through a generalized burst duration t burst ?> that includes

Evidence for a Canonical Gamma-Ray Burst Afterglow Light Curve in the Swift XRT Data

We present new observations of the early X-ray afterglows of the first 27 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) well observed by the Swift X-Ray Telescope (XRT). The early X-ray afterglows show a canonical
