We present a multi-wavelength study of GRB 081008, at redshift 1.967, by Swift, ROTSE-III, and Gamma-Ray Burst Optical/NearInfrared Detector. Compared to other Swift GRBs, GRB 081008 has a typical gamma-ray isotropic equivalent energy output (~10^(53) erg) during the prompt phase, and displayed two temporally separated clusters of pulses. The early X-ray emission seen by the Swift X-Ray Telescope was dominated by the softening tail of the prompt emission, producing multiple flares during and… Expand
GRB 090727 AND GAMMA-RAY BURSTS WITH EARLY-TIME OPTICAL EMISSION
We present a multi-wavelength analysis of Swift gamma-ray burst GRB 090727, for which optical emission was detected during the prompt gamma-ray emission by the 2 m autonomous robotic LiverpoolExpand
A faint optical flash in dust-obscured GRB 080603A: implications for GRB prompt emission mechanisms
TLDR
A faint optical flash is detected by the 2-m Faulkes Telescope North simultaneously with the second of two prompt γ-ray pulses in INTEGRAL gamma-ray burst (GRB) 080603A, and it is suggested that the optical flash could originate from the inhomogeneity of the relativistic flow. Expand
The nature of "dark" gamma-ray bursts
Context. Thirteen years after the discovery of the first afterglows, the nature of dark gamma-ray bursts (GRB) still eludes explanation: while each long-duration GRB typically has an X-ray afterglow,Expand
PHENOMENOLOGY OF REVERSE-SHOCK EMISSION IN THE OPTICAL AFTERGLOWS OF GAMMA-RAY BURSTS
We use a parent sample of 118 gamma-ray burst (GRB) afterglows, with known redshift and host galaxy extinction, to separate afterglows with and without signatures of dominant reverse-shock emissionExpand
A CORRELATED STUDY OF OPTICAL AND X-RAY AFTERGLOWS OF GRBs
We study an extensive sample of 87 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) for which there are well-sampled and simultaneous optical and X-ray light curves. We extract the cleanest possible signal of the afterglowExpand
A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF GAMMA-RAY BURST OPTICAL EMISSION. II. AFTERGLOW ONSET AND LATE RE-BRIGHTENING COMPONENTS
We continue our systematic statistical study of various components of gamma-ray burst (GRB) optical light curves. We decompose the early onset bump and the late re-brightening bump with empiricalExpand
Estimates for Lorentz factors of gamma-ray bursts from early optical afterglow observations
The peak time of optical afterglow may be used as a proxy to constrain the Lorentz factor Γ of the gamma-ray burst (GRB) ejecta. We revisit this method by including bursts with optical observationsExpand
Gamma-Ray Burst Jet Breaks Revisited
Gamma-ray Burst (GRB) collimation has been inferred with the observations of achromatic steepening in GRB light curves, known as jet breaks. Identifying a jet break from a GRB afterglow lightcurveExpand
Early X-ray Flares in GRBs
We analyze the early X-ray flares in the GRB "flare-plateau-afterglow" (FPA) phase observed by Swift-XRT. The FPA occurs only in one of the seven GRB subclasses: the binary-driven hypernovae (BdHNe).Expand
A Large Catalog of Homogeneous Ultra-Violet/Optical GRB Afterglows: Temporal and Spectral Evolution
We present the second Swift Ultra-Violet/Optical Telescope (UVOT) gamma-ray burst (GRB) afterglow catalog, greatly expanding on the first Swift UVOT GRB afterglow catalog. The second catalog isExpand

The Early X-Ray Emission from GRBs
TLDR
Observations of the early X-ray emission for a sample of 40 gamma-ray bursts obtained using the Swift satellite, for which the narrow-field instruments were pointed at the burst within 10 minutes of the trigger, show that theX-ray light curve can be well described by an exponential that relaxes into a power law.

The giant X-ray flare of GRB 050502B: Evidence for late-time internal engine activity
TLDR
The evidence presented below, including spectral and, particularly, timing information during and around the giant flare, suggests that this giant flare was the result of internal dissipation of energy due to late central engine activity, rather than an afterglow-related effect. Expand
