Astrophysical and Biological Implications of Gamma Ray Burst Properties

Abstract

Combining results from Schmidt (1999) for the local cosmic rate and mean peak luminosity of γ-ray bursts (GRBs) with recent work on the history of the cosmic star formation rate, we provide estimates for the local GRB rate per unit blue luminosity in galaxies. These values are used to examine a number of phenomena with the following conclusions: 1) The… (More)
