Long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and X-ray flashes (XRFs) are produced by highly relativistic jets ejected in core-collapse supernova (SN) explosions. The origin of short hard gamma-ray bursts (SHBs) has not been established. They may be produced by highly relativistic jets ejected in various processes: mergers of compact stellar objects, large-mass accretion episodes onto compact stars in close binaries or onto intermediate-mass black holes in dense stellar regions, phase transition in… Expand

Flares in Long and Short Gamma-ray Bursts
The many similarities between the prompt emission pulses in gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and X-ray flares during the fast decay and afterglow (AG) phases of GRBs suggest a common origin. In the cannonballExpand
Cannonball model diagnosis of the short gamma ray burst 170817A
The rich and complex data obtained from multi-wavelength observations of SHB170817A, the short hard gamma ray burst (SHB) associated with GW170817 --the first neutron stars merger (NSM) eventExpand
Short-duration Gamma-ray Bursts From Off-axis Collapsars
We present two-dimensional (2D) high-resolution hydrodynamic simulations of the relativistic outflows of long-duration gamma-ray burst (GRB) progenitors. We analyze the properties of the outflows atExpand
GRB 130603B: No Compelling Evidence for Neutron Star Merger
The near infrared (NIR) flare/rebrightening in the afterglow of the short hard gamma ray burst (SHB) 130603B measured with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and an alleged late-time X-ray excess wereExpand
ON THE RECENTLY DISCOVERED CORRELATIONS BETWEEN GAMMA-RAY AND X-RAY PROPERTIES OF GAMMA-RAY BURSTS
Recently, many correlations between the prompt γ-ray emission properties and the X-ray afterglow properties of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been inferred from a comprehensive analysis of the X-rayExpand
Long Gamma Ray Bursts Trace The Star Formation History
We show that if the broad-line supernova explosions of type Ic (SNeIc) produce the bulk of the observed long duration gamma ray bursts (LGRBs), which include the high luminosity GRBs, low luminosityExpand
The long and the short of it: modelling double neutron star and collapsar Galactic dynamics
Understanding the nature of galactic populations of double compact binaries (where both stars are a neutron star or black hole) has been a topic of interest for many years, particularly theExpand
THE DIVERSE BROADBAND LIGHT CURVES OF SWIFT GAMMA-RAY BURSTS REPRODUCED WITH THE CANNONBALL MODEL
Two radiation mechanisms, inverse Compton scattering (ICS) and synchrotron radiation (SR), suffice within the Cannonball (CB) model of long gamma-ray bursts (LGRBs) and X-ray flashes (XRFs) toExpand
A history of the gamma-ray burst flux at the Earth from Galactic globular clusters
Nearby gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are likely to have represented a significant threat to life on the Earth. Recent observations suggest that a significant source of such bursts is compact binary mergersExpand
Gamma-Ray Burst in Swift and Fermi Era
We update gamma-ray burst (GRB) luminosity relations among certain spectral and light-curve features with 139 GRBs. The distance modulus of 82 GRBs at z > 1.4 can be calibrated with the sample at zExpand

Gamma Ray Bursts from Minijets
Striking similarities exist between high energy gamma ray emission from active galactic nuclei (AGN) and gamma ray bursts (GRBs). They suggest that GRBs are generated by inverse Compton scatteringExpand
Short-hard gamma-ray bursts
Two types of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are observed: short-duration hard spectrum GRBs and long-duration soft spectrum GRBs. For many years long GRBs were the focus of intense research while the lackExpand
The afterglow and elliptical host galaxy of the short γ-ray burst GRB 050724
Despite a rich phenomenology, γ-ray bursts (GRBs) are divided into two classes based on their duration and spectral hardness—the long-soft and the short-hard bursts. The discovery of afterglowExpand
A cannonball model of gamma-ray bursts: superluminal signatures
Recent observations suggest that the long-duration gamma ray bursts (GRBs) and their afterglows are produced by highly relativistic jets emitted in supernova explosions. We propose that the result ofExpand
Discovery of the short γ-ray burst GRB 050709
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) fall into two classes: short-hard and long-soft bursts. The latter are now known to have X-ray and optical afterglows, to occur at cosmological distances in star-formingExpand

The final chapter in the long-standing mystery of the γ-ray bursts (GRBs) centres on the origin of the short-hard class of bursts, which are suspected on theoretical grounds to result from theExpand
A short γ-ray burst apparently associated with an elliptical galaxy at redshift z = 0.225
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) come in two classes: long (> 2 s), soft-spectrum bursts and short, hard events. Most progress has been made on understanding the long GRBs, which are typically observed atExpand
GRB 060313: A New Paradigm for Short-Hard Bursts?
TLDR
The combination of the X-ray and UV/optical observations provides the most comprehensive light curves to date of a short-hard burst at such an early epoch, and the afterglows exhibit complex structure with different decay indices and flaring. Expand
On the optical and X-ray afterglows of gamma ray bursts
We severely criticize the consuetudinary analysis of the afterglows of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) in the conical-ejection fireball scenarios. We argue that, instead, recent observations imply that theExpand
