  author={P. Sathies Kumar and Alin Panaitescu},
We calculate theafterglowemission for Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs) going off in an extremely low density medium, referred to as naked bursts . Our results also apply to the case where the external medium density falls off sharply at some distance from the burst. The observed afterglow flux in this case originates at high latitudes, i.e. where the angle between… CONTINUE READING
