GRB 211227A as a Peculiar Long Gamma-Ray Burst from a Compact Star Merger
Long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) associated with supernovae (SNe) are believed to originate from massive star core-collapse events, whereas short-duration GRBs that are related to compact star
Two dimensional clustering of Gamma-Ray Bursts using durations and hardness
Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs) have been conventionally bifurcated into two distinct categories: ``short'' and ``long'' with durations less than and greater than two seconds respectively. However, there is
In Search of Short Gamma-Ray Burst Optical Counterparts with the Zwicky Transient Facility
The Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggers on-board in response to ∼40 short gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs) per year; however, their large localization regions have made the search for optical
The Optical Two and Three-Dimensional Fundamental Plane Correlations for Nearly 180 Gamma-Ray Burst Afterglows with Swift/UVOT, RATIR, and the SUBARU Telescope
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are fascinating events due to their panchromatic nature. We study optical plateaus in GRB afterglows via an extended search into archival data. We comprehensively analyze all
A minute-long merger-driven gamma-ray burst from fast-cooling synchrotron emission
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are intense episodes of high-energy emission seen isotropically across the sky and all through cosmic time. For decades, they have been broadly divided into ‘long’- and
Instrumental Tip-of-the-iceberg Effects on the Prompt Emission of Swift/BAT Gamma-ray Bursts
The observed durations of prompt gamma-ray emission from gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are often used to infer the progenitors and energetics of the sources. Inaccurate duration measurements will have a
NMMA: A nuclear-physics and multi-messenger astrophysics framework to analyze binary neutron star mergers
The multi-messenger detection of the gravitational-wave signal the corresponding kilonova AT2017gfo and the short gamma-ray burst GRB170817A, as well as the observed afterglow has delivered a

The Second Catalog of Interplanetary Network Localizations of Konus Short-duration Gamma-Ray Bursts
We present the catalog of InterPlanetary Network (IPN) localizations for 199 short-duration gamma-ray bursts (sGRBs) detected by the Konus-Wind (KW) experiment between 2011 January 1 and 2021 August

The Needle in the 100 deg2 Haystack: Uncovering Afterglows of Fermi GRBs with the Palomar Transient Factory
The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has greatly expanded the number and energy window of observations of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). However, the coarse localizations of tens to a hundred square degrees
The Konus–Wind Catalog of Gamma-Ray Bursts with Known Redshifts. II. Waiting-Mode Bursts Simultaneously Detected by Swift/BAT
In the second part of The Konus–Wind Catalog of Gamma-Ray Bursts with Known Redshifts (the first part: Tsvetkova et al. ; T17), we present the results of a systematic study of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs)

Gravitational Waves and Gamma-Rays from a Binary Neutron Star Merger : GW 170817 and GRB 170817 A
On 2017 August 17, the gravitational-wave event GW170817 was observed by the Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors, and the gamma-ray burst (GRB) GRB170817A was observed independently by the Fermi
GRB 160625B: Evidence for a Gaussian-shaped Jet
We present multiwavelength modeling of the afterglow from the long gamma-ray burst GRB 160625B using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) techniques of the afterglowpy Python package. GRB 160625B is an
The gamma-ray burst GRB060614 requires a novel explosive process
Over the past decade our physical understanding of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) has progressed rapidly thanks to the discovery and observation of their long-lived afterglow emission. Long-duration (T<2 s)
Observations of the GRB afterglow ATLAS17aeu and its possible association with GW 170104
We report the discovery and multi-wavelength data analysis of the peculiar optical transient, ATLAS17aeu. This transient was identified in the skymap of the LIGO gravitational wave event GW170104 by
Properties of Relativistic Jets in Gamma-Ray Burst Afterglows
We extend our calculation of physical parameters of gamma-ray burst (GRB) jets by modeling the broadband emission of the afterglows 970508, 980519, 991208, 000926, 000418, and 010222. Together with
Light curves of the neutron star merger GW170817/SSS17a: Implications for r-process nucleosynthesis
The late-time light curve indicates that SSS17a produced at least ~0.05 solar masses of heavy elements, demonstrating that neutron star mergers play a role in rapid neutron capture (r-process) nucleosynthesis in the universe.
