Properties of Short GRB Pulses in the Fourth BATSE Catalog: Implications for the Structure and Evolution of the Jetted Outflows

Considering the shortage of comparative studies on pulse temporal characteristics between singlepeaked short gamma-ray bursts (sGRBs) and double-peaked sGRBs, we examine the pulse properties of a

Adiabatic and Radiative Cooling of Relativistic Electrons Applied to Synchrotron Spectra and Light Curves of Gamma-Ray Burst Pulses

We investigate the adiabatic and radiative (synchrotron and inverse-Compton) cooling of relativistic electrons whose injected or initial distribution with energy is a power law. Analytical and

MEPSA: A flexible peak search algorithm designed for uniformly spaced time series

Statistical Properties of the Highest Pulses in Gamma-Ray Bursts

We study the statistical properties of the highest pulses within individual gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). A wavelet package analysis technique and a developed pulse-finding algorithm have been applied to

Temporal properties of gamma-ray bursts as signatures of jets from the central engine

A comprehensive temporal analysis has been performed on the 319 brightest GRBs with T90 > 2s from the BATSE current catalog. The GRBs were denoised using wavelets and subjected to an automatic pulse

Spectral Lags of Gamma-Ray Bursts From Ginga and BATSE

From the internal shock model, it is found that there are three sources of time structure in GRB pulses: cooling, hydrodynamics, and angular effects, which argue that cooling is much too fast to account for the authors' observed lags and that angular effects are independent of energy.


We construct models for gamma-ray bursts where the emission comes from internal shocks in a relativistic wind with a highly non uniform distribution of the Lorentz factor. We follow the evolution of

The Duration-Photon Energy Relation of Gamma-Ray Bursts and Its Interpretations

Fenimore et al. have recently presented a very tight correlation between the spectral and the temporal structure in gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). In particular, they discovered that the durations of the

Implications of the Lag-Luminosity Relationship for Unified Gamma-Ray Burst Paradigms

Spectral lags (τlag) are deduced using a cross-correlation methodology for 1429 long (T90 > 2 s) BATSE gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with peak flux Fp > 0.25 photons cm-2 s-1, near to the BATSE trigger

Temporal Properties of Precursors, Main Peaks, and Extended Emissions of Short GRBs in the Third Swift/BAT GRB Catalog

A comprehensive study is given to short gamma-ray bursts (sGRBs) in the third Swift Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) GRB Catalog from 2004 December to 2019 July. We examine in detail the temporal
