  • The intriguing observations of the Swift/Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) X-ray flash (XRF) 060218 and the BATSE-BeppoSAX gamma-ray burst GRB 980425, both with much lower luminosity and redshift compared to other observed bursts, naturally lead to the question of how these low-luminosity (LL) bursts are related to high-luminosity (HL) bursts. Incorporating the constraints from both the flux-limited samples observed with Compton Gamma-ray Observatory (CGRO )/BATSE and Swift/BAT and the redshift-known… CONTINUE READING
