Modeling Synchrotron Self-Compton and Klein-Nishina Effects in Gamma-Ray Burst Afterglows

  author={Taylor E. Jacovich and Paz Beniamini and A. van der Horst},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Astrophysical Phenomena},
We present a self-consistent way of modeling synchrotron self-Compton (SSC) effects in gamma-ray burst afterglows, with and without approximated Klein-Nishina suppressed scattering. We provide an analytic approximation of our results, so that it can be incorporated into the afterglow modeling code \texttt{boxfit}, which is currently based on pure synchrotron emission. We discuss the changes in spectral shape and evolution due to SSC effects, and comment on how these changes affect physical… Expand
A tale of two mergers: constraints on kilonova detection in two short GRBs at z$\sim$0.5
We present a detailed multi-wavelength analysis of two short Gamma-Ray Bursts (sGRBs) detected by the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory: GRB 160624A at $z=0.483$ and GRB 200522A at $z=0.554$. TheseExpand


Deceleration of relativistic jets with lateral expansion
We present a model for the hydrodynamics of a relativistic jet interacting with the circum-stellar medium (CSM). The shocked CSM and the jet material are assumed to be in an infinitely thin surface,Expand
