Observations suggest that {gamma}-ray bursts (GRBs) are produced by the dissipation of the kinetic energy of a relativistic fireball. We show that a large fraction, {ge}10{percent}, of the fireball energy is expected to be converted by photomeson production to a burst of {approximately}10{sup 14}eV neutrinos. A km{sup 2} neutrino detector would observe at least several tens of events per year correlated with GRBs, and test for neutrino properties (e.g., flavor oscillations, for which upward… 
Can there be neutrino oscillations in a gamma-ray burst fireball?
The central engine which powers the gamma-ray burst fireball produces neutrinos in the energy range of about 5-20 MeV. Fractions of these neutrinos may propagate through the fireball which is far
High energy neutrinos from gamma-ray burst fireballs
The diffuse high-energy neutrino emission from long and short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) is studied within the fireball emission model. By requiring that the GRB high-energy neutrino counterparts follow
Neutrino Emission from High-energy Component Gamma-ray Bursts
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have the potential to produce the particle energies (up to 1021 eV) and energy budget (1044 erg yr−1 Mpc−3) to accommodate the spectrum of the highest energy cosmic rays; on
FERMI LIMIT ON THE NEUTRINO FLUX FROM GAMMA-RAY BURSTS
If gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) produce high-energy cosmic rays, neutrinos are expected to be generated in GRBs via photo-pion productions. However, we stress that the same process also generates
Prompt high-energy neutrinos from gamma-ray bursts in photospheric and synchrotron self-Compton scenarios
We investigate neutrino emission from gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) under alternative scenarios for prompt emission (the photospheric and synchrotron self-Compton scenarios) rather than the classical
An absence of neutrinos associated with cosmic-ray acceleration in γ-ray bursts
TLDR
An upper limit on the flux of energetic neutrinos associated with GRBs that is at least a factor of 3.7 below the predictions is reported, implying either that GRBs are not the only sources of cosmic rays with energies exceeding 1018 electronvolts or that the efficiency of neutrino production is much lower than has been predicted.
Search for high energy neutrinos from bright GRBs with ANTARES
Gamma-ray bursts are thought to be cosmic-ray accelerators, thus neutrinos are expected from the decay of charged mesons, produced in pγ interactions. The search for high-energy neutrinos from
On the Neutrino Flux from Gamma-Ray Bursts
Observations imply that γ-ray bursts (GRBs) are produced by the dissipation of the kinetic energy of a highly relativistic fireball. Photomeson interactions of protons with γ-rays within the fireball
Gamma-Ray Bursts at Neutrino Telescopes
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are among the prime suspects as the sources of ultra-high energy (UHE) cosmic rays (CRs). It is believed that these sources are capable of accelerating nuclei to the extreme
