The observational follow-up campaign of the gravitational wave (GW) multimessenger event GW170817/GRB170817A has shown that the prompt gamma-rays are consistent with a relativistic structured jet observed from a wide viewing angle ≳20°. We perform Bayesian inference using the data from early and late EM observations to determine the jet profile of GRB170817A assuming a structured jet model. We use the geometric dependence on the burst luminosity to produce a short-duration gamma-ray burst (sGRB… 

Jet Geometry and Rate Estimate of Coincident Gamma-Ray Burst and Gravitational-wave Observations

Short gamma-ray burst (SGRB) progenitors have long been thought to be coalescing binary systems of two neutron stars (NSNS) or a neutron star and a black hole. The 2017 August 17th detection of the
