Recent observations have shown that repeating fast radio bursts (FRBs) exhibit band-limited emission, whose frequency-dependent amplitude can be modeled using a Gaussian function. In this analysis, we show that banded emission of FRBs can lead to incompleteness across the observing band. This biases the detected sample of bursts and can explain the various shapes of cumulative energy distributions seen for repeating FRBs. We assume a Gaussian shape of the burst spectra and use simulations to… Expand
Comprehensive Analysis of a Dense Sample of FRB 121102 Bursts
We present an analysis of a densely repeating sample of bursts from the first repeating fast radio burst, FRB 121102. We reanalyzed the data used by Gourdji et al. and detected 93 additional burstsExpand


FRB 121102 Bursts Show Complex Time–Frequency Structure
FRB 121102 is the only known repeating fast radio burst source. Here we analyze a wide-frequency-range (1–8 GHz) sample of high signal-to-noise, coherently dedispersed bursts detected using theExpand
A Multi-telescope Campaign on FRB 121102: Implications for the FRB Population
We present results of the coordinated observing campaign that made the first subarcsecond localization of a fast radio burst, FRB 121102. During this campaign, we made the first simultaneousExpand
On the radiation mechanism of repeating fast radio bursts
Recent observations show that fast radio bursts (FRBs) are energetic but probably non-catastrophic events occurring at cosmological distances. The properties of their progenitors are largely unknownExpand
Super-giant pulses from the Crab pulsar: energy distribution and occurrence rate
We present statistical analysis of a fluence-limited sample of over 1100 giant pulses from the Crab pulsar, with fluence > 130 Jy ms at ∼1330 MHz. These were detected in ∼260 h of observation withExpand
Chromatic periodic activity down to 120 megahertz in a fast radio burst.
The chromatic results strongly disfavour scenarios in which absorption from strong stellar winds causes FRB periodicity, and it is demonstrated that some FRBs are found in 'clean' environments that do not absorb or scatter low-frequency radiation. Expand
Statistical properties of magnetar bursts and FRB 121102
In this paper, we present statistics of soft gamma repeater (SGR) bursts from SGR J1550−5418, SGR 1806−20, and SGR 1900+14 by adding new bursts from Kırmızıbayrak et al. detected with the RossiExpand
Fast radio bursts: search sensitivities and completeness
In this paper we identify some sub-optimal performance in algorithms that search for Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs), which can reduce the cosmological volume probed by over 20%, and result in missedExpand
Fast Radio Burst Energetics and Detectability from High Redshifts
We estimate the upper limit redshifts of known FRBs using the dispersion measure (DM) redshift (z) relation and derive the upper limit peak luminosity Lp and energy E of FRBs within the observationalExpand
Fast radio bursts
The discovery of radio pulsars over a half century ago was a seminal moment in astronomy. It demonstrated the existence of neutron stars, gave a powerful observational tool to study them, and hasExpand
VLA/Realfast Detection of a Burst from FRB 180916.J0158+65 and Tests for Periodic Activity
We report on the detection of a burst from FRB180916 by realfast/VLA and present software for interpreting fast radio bursts (FRB) periodicity. We demonstrate a range of periodicity analyses withExpand
