We report the detection of a dispersed fast radio burst (FRB) in archival intermediate-latitude Parkes Radio Telescope data. The burst appears to be of the same physical origin as the four purported extragalactic FRBs reported by Thornton et al. This burst's arrival time precedes the Thornton et al. bursts by 10 years. We consider that this survey, and many other archival low-latitude (|gb| < 30°) pulsar surveys, have been searched for FRBs but produced fewer detections than the comparatively… 

A fast radio burst in the direction of the Carina dwarf spheroidal galaxy

We report the real-time discovery of a fast radio burst (FRB 131104) with the Parkes radio telescope in a targeted observation of the Carina dwarf spheroidal galaxy. The dispersion measure of the

Fast radio bursts: the observational case for a Galactic origin

There are by now ten published detections of fast radio bursts (FRBs), single bright GHz-band millisecond pulses of unknown origin. Proposed explanations cover a broad range from exotic processes at

On the paucity of Fast Radio Bursts at low Galactic latitudes

We examine the effect of Galactic diffractive interstellar scintillation as a means of explaining the reported deficit of Fast Radio Burst (FRB) detections at low Galactic latitude. We model the

The Fluence and Distance Distributions of Fast Radio Bursts

Fast radio bursts (FRB) are millisecond-duration radio pulses with apparent extragalactic origins. All but two of the FRBs have been discovered using the Parkes dish, which employs multiple beams

The dispersion–brightness relation for fast radio bursts from a wide-field survey

TLDR
A large-scale survey of fast radio bursts—short pulses of radio waves that seem to come from cosmological distances—finds 20 events, including both the nearest and the most energetic bursts observed so far, and demonstrates that there is a relationship between burst dispersion and brightness.

I present an empirical study of the properties of fast radio bursts (FRBs): gigahertz-frequency, dispersed pulses of extragalactic origin. I focus my investigation on a sample of 17 FRBs detected at

THE REPEATING FAST RADIO BURST FRB 121102: MULTI-WAVELENGTH OBSERVATIONS AND ADDITIONAL BURSTS

We report on radio and X-ray observations of the only known repeating Fast Radio Burst (FRB) source, FRB 121102. We have detected six additional radio bursts from this source: five with the Green

The SUrvey for Pulsars and Extragalactic Radio Bursts – II. New FRB discoveries and their follow-up.

We report the discovery of four Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) in the ongoing SUrvey for Pulsars and Extragalactic Radio Bursts at the Parkes Radio Telescope: FRBs 150610, 151206, 151230 and 160102. Our

Intensity distribution function and statistical properties of fast radio bursts

Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are intense radio flashes from the sky that are characterized by millisecond durations and Jansky-level flux densities. We carried out a statistical analysis on FRBs that

A Search for Fast Radio Bursts with the GBNCC Pulsar Survey

We report on a search for fast radio bursts (FRBs) with the Green Bank Northern Celestial Cap (GBNCC) Pulsar Survey at 350 MHz. Pointings amounting to a total on-sky time of 61 days were searched to

AN ABSENCE OF FAST RADIO BURSTS AT INTERMEDIATE GALACTIC LATITUDES

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are an emerging class of bright, highly dispersed radio pulses. Recent work by Thornton et al. has revealed a population of FRBs in the High Time Resolution Universe (HTRU)

Recent discoveries of highly dispersed millisecond radio bursts by Thornton et al. in a survey with the Parkes radio telescope at 1.4 GHz point towards an emerging population of sources at

Fast Radio Burst Discovered in the Arecibo Pulsar ALFA Survey

Recent work has exploited pulsar survey data to identify temporally isolated, millisecond-duration radio bursts with large dispersion measures (DMs). These bursts have been interpreted as arising

A Population of Fast Radio Bursts at Cosmological Distances

TLDR
The detection of four nonrepeating radio transient events with millisecond duration in data from the 64-meter Parkes radio telescope in Australia indicates that these radio bursts had their origin outside the authors' galaxy, but it is not possible to tell what caused them.

RADIO BURSTS WITH EXTRAGALACTIC SPECTRAL CHARACTERISTICS SHOW TERRESTRIAL ORIGINS

Three years ago, the report of a solitary radio burst was thought to be the first discovery of a rare, impulsive event of unknown extragalactic origin. The extragalactic interpretation was based on
