Fe b 20 01 The Trans-Relativistic Blast Wave Model for SN 1998 bw and GRB 980425


The spatiotemporal coincidence of supernova (SN) 1998bw and gamma-ray burst (GRB) 980425 and this supernova’s unusual optical and radio properties have prompted many theoretical models that produce GRBs from supernovae. We review the salient features of our simple, spherical model in which an energetic supernova explosion shock accelerates a small fraction… (More)
