On the Redshift Distribution of Long-Duration Gamma-Ray Bursts

Abstract

The 26 long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with known redshifts form a distinct cosmological set, selected differently than other cosmological probes such as quasars and galaxies. Since the progenitors are now believed to be connected with active starformation and since burst emission penetrates dust, one hope is that with a uniformlyselected sample, the… (More)
