Gamma-ray Bursts (GRB) were discovered by satellite-based detectors as powerful sources of transient γ-ray emission. The Fermi satellite detected an increasing number of these events with its dedicated Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM), some of which were associated with high energy photons ($E \gt 10$ GeV), by the Large Area Telescope (LAT). More recently, follow-up observations by Cherenkov telescopes detected very high energy emission ($E \gt 100$ GeV) from GRBs, opening up a new observational… Expand

Probing Gamma-Ray Burst VHE Emission with the Southern Wide-Field-of-View Gamma-Ray Observatory
Recent observations have confirmed that Gamma-Ray Burst (GRB) afterglows produce Very High-Energy radiation (VHE, E>100GeV). This highly anticipated discovery opens new scenarios in theExpand


GeV emission from gamma‐ray bursts: a radiative fireball?
We study the emission observed at energies > 100 MeV of 11 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) detected by the Fermi-Large Area Telescope (LAT) until 2009 October. The GeV emission has three main properties: (i)Expand
Fermi Observations of High-Energy Gamma-Ray Emission from GRB 080916C
The Gamma-ray Burst Monitor and Large Area Telescope onboard the Fermi Observatory together record GRBs over a broad energy range spanning about 7 decades of gammaray energy, with the largest apparent energy release yet measured. Expand
THE fermi gamma-ray burst monitor
The Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor (GBM) will significantly augment the science return from the Fermi Observatory in the study of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The primary objective of GBM is to extend theExpand
A Decade of Gamma-Ray Bursts Observed by Fermi-LAT: The Second GRB Catalog
The Large Area Telescope (LAT) aboard the Fermi spacecraft routinely observes high-energy emission from gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). Here we present the second catalog of LAT-detected GRBs, covering theExpand
High energy emission from the prompt gamma - ray burst
We study the synchrotron and synchrotron self-Compton (SSC) emission from internal shocks that are responsible for the prompt gamma-ray emission in gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and consider the relationExpand
Teraelectronvolt emission from the γ-ray burst GRB 190114C
Observations of teraelectronvolt emission from the γ-ray burst GRB 190114C reveal a distinct component of the afterglow emission with power comparable to that of the synchrotron emission. Expand
Multi-messenger light curves from gamma-ray bursts in the internal shock model
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are promising as sources of neutrinos and cosmic rays. In the internal shock scenario, blobs of plasma emitted from a central engine collide within a relativistic jet and formExpand
Gamma-ray bursts are produced by the dissipation of the kinetic energy of a highly relativistic fireball, via the formation of a collisionless shock. When this happens, Ultra High Energy Cosmic RaysExpand
Prompt GeV Emission from Residual Collisions in Gamma-Ray Burst Outflows: Evidence from Fermi Observations of Grb 080916c
The ?-rays from gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are believed to be produced by internal shocks driven by small timescale, ~1 ms, variation in the GRB outflows, and a pair-production spectral cutoff isExpand
The physics of gamma-ray bursts
Gamma-ray bursts (GRB's), short and intense pulses of low-energy $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ rays, have fascinated astronomers and astrophysicists since their unexpected discovery in the late sixties.Expand
