On the Nature of Nonthermal Radiation from Cosmological Γ-ray Bursters

Abstract

Relativistic electron-positron winds with strong magnetic fields are considered as a source of radiation for cosmological γ-ray bursters. Such a wind is generated by a millisecond pulsar with a very strong magnetic field. An electronpositron plasma near the pulsar is optically thick and in quasi-thermodynamic equilibrium. It is shown that the main part of… (More)
