Data accumulated over the past year strongly favour the idea that γ-ray bursts lie at cosmological distances, although the nature of the power source remains unclear. Here we report radio observations of the supernova SN1998bw, which exploded at about the same time, and in about the same direction, as the γ-ray burst GRB980425. At its peak, the supernova was unusually luminous at radio wavelengths. A simple interpretation of the data requires that the source expanded with an apparent velocity…

A very energetic supernova associated with the γ-ray burst of 29 March 2003
Over the past five years evidence has mounted that long-duration (>2 s) γ-ray bursts (GRBs)—the most luminous of all astronomical explosions—signal the collapse of massive stars in our Universe. This
Radio supernova sn 1998bw and its relation to grb 980425
• Physics

SN 1998bw is an unusual Type Ic supernova that may be associated with the γ-ray burst GRB 980425. We use a synchrotron self-absorption model for its radio emission to deduce that the
The unusual afterglow of the γ-ray burst of 26 March 1998 as evidence for a supernova connection
Cosmic γ-ray bursts have now been firmly established as one of the most powerful phenomena in the Universe, releasing almost the rest-mass energy of a neutron star within the space of a few seconds
I consider radio emission from the remarkable supernova (SN) 1998bw. Decay of 56Ni and 56Co produces a gamma-ray flux, whose Compton-scattered electrons naturally explain the observed mildly
THE SIGNATURE OF THE CENTRAL ENGINE IN THE WEAKEST RELATIVISTIC EXPLOSIONS: GRB 100316D
We present late-time radio and X-ray observations of the nearby sub-energetic gamma-ray burst (GRB)100316D associated with supernova (SN) 2010bh. Our broad-band analysis constrains the explosion
The association of GRB 060218 with a supernova and the evolution of the shock wave
A supernova is caught in the act of exploding, directly observing the shock break-out, which indicates that the GRB progenitor was a Wolf–Rayet star.
Constraints on Off-Axis Gamma-Ray Burst Jets in Type Ibc Supernovae from Late-Time Radio Observations

It has been suggested that the peculiar properties of the luminous Type Ic supernova SN 1998bw and its low-energy gamma-ray burst GRB 980425 may be understood if they originated in a standard
A relativistic type Ibc supernova without a detected γ-ray burst
The discovery of luminous radio emission from the seemingly ordinary type Ibc SN 2009bb, which requires a substantial relativistic outflow powered by a central engine, is reported.
Relativistic ejecta from X-ray flash XRF 060218 and the rate of cosmic explosions
Radio and X-ray observations of XRF 060218 (associated with supernova SN 2006aj), the second-nearest GRB identified until now, are reported, showing that this event is a hundred times less energetic but ten times more common than cosmological GRBs.
