Double, Glen Paul. Investigations of Lepton and Baryon Acceleration in Relativistic Astrophysical Shocks. (Under the direction of Donald C. Ellison.) Gamma-ray bursts, occurring randomly each day anywhere in the universe, may be the brightest objects in the sky during their short life. Particle acceleration in mildly relativistic shocks, internal to the main blastwave, may explain the early intensity peaks in gamma-ray bursts and the afterglow may be explained by energetic particles accelerated… CONTINUE READING
