We report on the detection of seven bursts from the periodically active, repeating fast radio burst (FRB) source FRB 180916.J0158+65 in the 300-400-MHz frequency range with the Green Bank Telescope (GBT). Emission in multiple bursts is visible down to the bottom of the GBT band, suggesting that the cutoff frequency (if it exists) for FRB emission is lower than 300 MHz. Observations were conducted during predicted periods of activity of the source, and had simultaneous coverage with the Low…

LOFAR Detection of 110–188 MHz Emission and Frequency-dependent Activity from FRB 20180916B
The object FRB 20180916B is a well-studied repeating fast radio burst source. Its proximity (∼150 Mpc), along with detailed studies of the bursts, has revealed many clues about its nature, including
Fast radio bursts at the dawn of the 2020s
Since the discovery of the first fast radio burst (FRB) in 2007, and their confirmation as an abundant extragalactic population in 2013, the study of these sources has expanded at an incredible rate.
A Fast Radio Burst Progenitor Born in a Galaxy Merger
We report a Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope 21 cm mapping study of the neutral atomic hydrogen (Hi) in the host galaxy of the fast radio burst (FRB) FRB 20180916B at z ≈ 0.03399. We find that the FRB

Predictions by New Tired Light were tested using 14,577 objects from the NED-D compilation of redshift-independent distances. These objects give an electron number density of ne = 0.499 m −3 compared
Empirical Assessment of Aperiodic and Periodic Radio Bursts from Young Precessing Magnetars
We analyze the slow periodicities identified in burst sequences from FRB 121102 and FRB 180916 with periods of about 16 and 160 days, respectively, while also addressing the absence of any fast
Magnetospheric Curvature Radiation by Bunches as Emission Mechanism for Repeating Fast Radio Bursts
Coherent curvature radiation as the radiation mechanism for fast radio bursts (FRBs) has been discussed since FRBs were discovered. We study the spectral and polarization properties of repeating

While repeating fast radio bursts (FRBs) remain scarce in number, they provide a unique opportunity for follow-up observations that enhance our knowledge of their sources and potentially of the FRB
FRBCAT: The Fast Radio Burst Catalogue
Abstract Here, we present a catalogue of known Fast Radio Burst sources in the form of an online catalogue, FRBCAT. The catalogue includes information about the instrumentation used for the
Fast radio bursts as synchrotron maser emission from decelerating relativistic blast waves
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) can arise from synchrotron maser emission at ultrarelativistic magnetized shocks, such as produced by flare ejecta from young magnetars. We combine particle-in-cell
FRB Periodicity: Mild Pulsars in Tight O/B-star Binaries
Periodicities observed in two Fast Radio Burst (FRB) sources (16 days in FRB 180916.J0158+65 and 160 days in FRB 121102) are consistent with that of tight, stellar mass binary systems. In the case of
Orbit-induced Spin Precession as a Possible Origin for Periodicity in Periodically Repeating Fast Radio Bursts
FRB 180916.J0158+65 has been found to repeatedly emit fast radio bursts with the period in roughly 16 days. We propose that such periodicity comes from orbit-induced, spin precession of the emitter,

We present 41 bursts from the first repeating fast radio burst discovered (FRB 121102). A deep search has allowed us to probe unprecedentedly low burst energies during two consecutive observations
A fast radio burst localized to a massive galaxy
Use of a specially built radio interferometer shows that a non-repeating fast radio burst is localized to a few-arcsecond region containing a single massive galaxy, and is perhaps derived from an old stellar population.
A single fast radio burst localized to a massive galaxy at cosmological distance
Interferometric localization of the single-pulse FRB 180924 to a position 4 kiloparsecs from the center of a luminous galaxy at redshift 0.3214 indicates that some FRBs are clean probes of the baryonic component of the cosmic web.
The low density and magnetization of a massive galaxy halo exposed by a fast radio burst
The detection of a fast radio burst (FRB 181112), localized with arcsecond precision, that passes through the halo of a foreground galaxy implies predominantly diffuse gas in massive galactic halos, even those hosting active supermassive black holes, contrary to some previous results.
