Short-duration gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs) are widely believed to be powered by the mergers of compact binaries, such as binary neutron stars or possibly neutron star-black hole binaries. Though the prospect of detecting SGRBs with gravitational wave (GW) signals by the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO)/VIRGO network is promising, no known SGRB has been found within the expected advanced LIGO/VIRGO sensitivity range for binary neutron star systems. We find…

Short GRBs: opening angles, local neutron star merger rate and off-axis events for GRB/GW association
The jet breaks in the afterglow lightcurves of short gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs), rarely detected so far, are crucial for estimating the half-opening angles of the ejecta ($\theta_{\rm j}$) and hence
GRB 111005A at z=0.0133 and the Prospect of Establishing Long-Short GRB/GW Association
GRB 111005A, a long-duration gamma-ray burst (GRB) that occurred within a metal-rich environment that lacks massive stars with MZAMS >= 15M(circle dot), is not coincident with supernova emission down
The second-closest gamma-ray burst: sub-luminous GRB 111005A with no supernova in a super-solar metallicity environment
We report the detection of the radio afterglow of a long gamma-ray burst (GRB) 111005A at 5-345 GHz, including very long baseline interferometry observations with a positional error of 0.2 mas. The
Late Afterglow Emission Statistics: A Clear Link between GW170817 and Bright Short Gamma-Ray Bursts
GW170817, the first neutron star merger event detected by advanced LIGO/Virgo detectors, was associated with an underluminous short duration GRB 170817A. In this work we compare the forward shock
Off-axis emission of short γ-ray bursts and the detectability of electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational-wave-detected binary mergers
We present calculations of the wide angle emission of short-duration gamma-ray bursts from compact binary merger progenitors. Such events are expected to be localized by their gravitational wave
A macronova associated with GRB 070809
GRB 070809 is a typical short gamma-ray burst (sGRB) detected by the Neil Gehrels {\it Swift} Observatory and at the location of the burst no underlying galaxy down to $\sim 28$th AB magnitude in
Gravitational waves induced by the asymmetric jets of gamma-ray bursts
We study the gravitational wave (GW) production induced by the asymmetric jets of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The asymmetric jets result in a recoil force acted on the central compact object, whose
A kilonova from an ultra-quick merger of a neutron star binary
GRB 060505 was the first well-known nearby (at redshift 0.089) “hybrid” gamma-ray burst that has a duration longer than 2 seconds but without the association of a supernova down to very stringent
The GW170817/GRB 170817A/AT 2017gfo Association: Some Implications for Physics and Astrophysics
On 2017 August 17, a gravitational-wave event (GW170817) and an associated short gamma-ray burst (GRB 170817A) from a binary neutron star merger had been detected. The follow-up optical/infrared
The Macronova in GRB 050709 and the GRB-macronova connection
A reanalysis of the publicly available data of this event and the discovery of a Li-Paczynski macronova/kilonova that dominates the optical/infrared signal at t>2.5 days supports the suggestion that compact binary mergers are significant and possibly main sites of heavy r-process nucleosynthesis.


Outlook for detection of GW inspirals by GRB-triggered searches in the advanced detector era
Short, hard gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are believed to originate from the coalescence of two neutron stars (NSs) or a NS and a black hole (BH). If this scenario is correct, then short GRBs will be
GRB 060505: A Possible Short-Duration Gamma-Ray Burst in a Star-forming Region at a Redshift of 0.09
On 2006 May 5, a 4 s duration, low-energy, ~1049 erg, gamma-ray burst (GRB) was observed, spatially associated with a z = 0.0894 galaxy. Here we report the discovery of the GRB optical afterglow and

Short-Duration Gamma-Ray Bursts
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) display a bimodal duration distribution with a separation between the short- and long-duration bursts at about 2 s. The progenitors of long GRBs have been identified as
Optical emission from GRB 050709 : a short/hard GRB in a star-forming galaxy
Optical observations of the short/hard gamma-ray burst GRB 050709 are presented, the first such event with an identified optical counterpart, and it is shown that at least some short GRBs originate in a young population.
The final inspiral of double neutron star and neutron-star-black-hole binaries are likely to be detected by advanced networks of ground-based gravitational wave (GW) interferometers. Maximizing the
No supernovae associated with two long-duration γ-ray bursts
It is now accepted that long-duration γ-ray bursts (GRBs) are produced during the collapse of a massive star1,2. The standard ‘collapsar’ model3 predicts that a broad-lined and luminous type Ic
Search for gravitational waves associated with gamma-ray bursts during LIGO science run 6 and Virgo science runs 2 and 3
We present the results of a search for gravitational waves associated with 154 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) that were detected by satellite-based gamma-ray experiments in 2009-2010, during the sixth LIGO
Making a Short Gamma-Ray Burst from a Long one: Implications for the Nature of GRB 060614
The absence of a supernova accompanying the nearby long GRB 060614 poses a great puzzle about the progenitor of this event and challenges the current GRB classification scheme. This burst displays a
Detectable radio flares following gravitational waves from mergers of binary neutron stars
Results of calculations are presented showing that the interaction of mildly relativistic outflows with the surrounding medium produces radio flares with peak emission at 1.4 gigahertz that persist at detectable (submillijansky) levels for weeks, out to a redshift of 0.1.
