Gravitational wave observations may constrain gamma-ray burst models: the case of GW 150914 - GBM
The possible short gamma-ray burst (GRB) observed by {\it Fermi}/GBM in coincidence with the first gravitational wave (GW) detection, offers new ways to test GRB prompt emission models. GravitationalExpand
Radio transients from newborn black holes
We consider radio emission from a newborn black hole (BH), which is accompanied by a mini-disk with a mass of $\lesssim M_\odot$. Such a disk can be formed from an outer edge of the progenitor'sExpand
Afterglows and Kilonovae Associated with Nearby Low-luminosity Short-duration Gamma-Ray Bursts: Application to GW170817/GRB 170817A
Very recently, the gravitational-wave (GW) event GW170817 was discovered to be associated with the short gamma-ray burst (GRB) 170817A. Multi-wavelength follow-up observations were carried out, andExpand
LOW-Γ JETS FROM COMPACT STELLAR MERGERS: CANDIDATE ELECTROMAGNETIC COUNTERPARTS TO GRAVITATIONAL WAVE SOURCES
Short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are believed to be produced by relativistic jets from mergers of neutron-stars (NS) or neutron-stars and black-holes (BH). If the Lorentz-factors Γ of jets fromExpand
Electromagnetic counterparts to structured jets from gravitational wave detected mergers
We show the peak magnitude for orphan afterglows from the jets of gravitational wave (GW) detected black-hole/neutron star - neutron star (BH/NS-NS) mergers highly depends on the jet half-openingExpand
Electromagnetic Luminosity of the Coalescence of Charged Black Hole Binaries
The observation of a possible electromagnetic counterpart by the Fermi GBM group to the aLIGO detection of the merger of a black hole binary has spawned a number of ideas about its source.Expand
GW 150914-like black holes as Galactic high-energy sources
The first direct detections of gravitational waves (GWs) from black hole (BH) mergers, GW150914, GW151226 and LVT151012, give a robust lower limit $\sim 70000$ on the number of merged,Expand
Single progenitor model for GW150914 and GW170104
The merger of stellar-mass black holes (BHs) is not expected to generate detectable electromagnetic (EM) emission. However, the gravitational wave (GW) events GW150914 and GW170104, detected by theExpand
Radio Follow-up of a Candidate γ-Ray Transient in the Sky Localization Area of GW170608
After the identification of a candidate $\gamma$-ray transient in the error region of the binary black hole (BBH) merger GW150914 by the \textit{Fermi} satellite, the question of whether BBH mergersExpand
Do we expect to detect electromagnetic radiation from merging stellar mass black binaries like GW150914? No
Context. The LIGO consortium announced the first direct detection of g ravitation wave event GW150914 from two merging black holes; however the nature of the black holes are still not cle ar. Aims.Expand
