The merger-driven Gamma-ray Bursts (GRBs) and their associated gravitational wave (GW) radiation, if both successfully detected, have some far-reaching implications, including for instance: (i) The statistical comparison of the physical properties of the short/long-short GRBs with and without GW detection can test the general origin model; (ii) Revealing the physical processes taking place at the central engine; (iii) Measuring the velocity of the Gravitational wave directly/accurately.

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
Fermi GBM Observations of LIGO Gravitational Wave event GW150914
With an instantaneous view of 70% of the sky, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) is an excellent partner in the search for electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational-wave (GW) events. GBM
Gravitational wave observations may constrain gamma-ray burst models: the case of GW 150914 - GBM
The possible short gamma-ray burst (GRB) observed by {\it Fermi}/GBM in coincidence with the first gravitational wave (GW) detection, offers new ways to test GRB prompt emission models. Gravitational
The Macronova in GRB 050709 and the GRB-macronova connection
TLDR
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.
Fermi-GBM Follow-up of LIGO-Virgo Binary Black Hole Mergers: Detection Prospects
Fermi-Gamma-ray Burst Monitor observed a 1 s long gamma-ray signal (GW150914-GBM) starting 0.4 s after the first gravitational wave detection from the binary black hole merger GW150914. GW150914-GBM
Fast radio bursts and their gamma-ray or radio afterglows as Kerr-Newman black hole binaries
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are radio transients lasting only about a few milliseconds. They seem to occur at cosmological distances. We propose that these events can be originated in the collapse of
GRB/GW association: Long-short GRB candidates, time-lag, measuring gravitational wave velocity and testing Einstein's equivalence principle
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
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
Gamma-Ray Burst in the Swift/Fermi Era and Beyond
e Swift and Fermi satellites have been observing gammaray bursts (GRBs), which are short-lived and intense flashes of gamma-rays associated with the death/explosion of massive stars and/or compact
Comparison of Gravitational Waves from Central Engines of Gamma-Ray Bursts: Neutrino-dominated Accretion Flows, Blandford–Znajek Mechanisms, and Millisecond Magnetars
Neutrino-dominated accretion flow (NDAF) around a rotating stellar-mass black hole (BH) is one of the plausible candidates for the central engines of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). Because the time-variant

The Light Curve of the Macronova Associated with the Long-Short Burst GRB 060614
The Swift-detected GRB 060614 was a unique burst that straddles an imaginary divide between long- and short-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), and its physical origin has been heavily debated over the
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

TLDR
The discovery of near-infrared bump that is significantly above the regular decaying afterglow is reported, which is inconsistent with even the weakest known supernova.
