On the Source and Location of Temporal Variability in Fireballs

Abstract

Most cosmological models for γ-ray bursts (GRBs) invoke the production of a “fireball” 1−3 in a compact region, as indicated by the short time variability of the observed GRBs. The high density of ee pairs in such fireballs inevitably makes them opaque to γ-rays and requires the γ-ray emission to take place only after the fireball has expanded and became… (More)
