  • This review describes the most common theories behind long-duration gamma-ray burst progenitors. I discuss two astrophysical scenarios: the collapsar and the magnetar models. According to their requirements, the progenitor should be an envelope-free massive star with a fast rotating, collapsing iron core. Such an object, called a TWUIN star, may be produced by chemically homogeneous evolution either from a massive single star or a massive binary system. Various outcomes of this evolutionary… CONTINUE READING
