We present the sample of gamma-ray bursts detected with the anti-coincidence shield ACS of the spectrometer SPI on-board INTEGRAL for the first 26.5 months of mission operation (up to Jan. 2005). SPI-ACS works as a nearly omnidirectional gamma-ray burst detector above ∼80keV but lacks spatial and spectral information. In this catalogue, the properties derived from the 50ms light curves (e.g., T 90 , C max , C int , variability, V/V max ) are given for each candidate burst in the sample. A…

Timing properties of gamma-ray bursts detected by SPI-ACS detector onboard INTEGRAL
We study timing properties of a large sample of gamma-ray bursts (GRB) detected by the Anti-Coincidence Shield (ACS) of the SPI spectrometer of INTEGRAL telescope. We identify GRB-like events in the
Catalog of short gamma-ray transients detected in the SPI/INTEGRAL experiment
We analyzed the data obtained by the SPI telescope onboard the INTEGRAL observatory to search for short transient events with a duration from 1 ms to a few tens of seconds. An algorithm for
Precursors of short gamma-ray bursts in the SPI-ACS/INTEGRAL experiment
We have analyzed the light curves of 519 short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) detected in the SPI-ACS/INTEGRAL experiment from December 2002 toMay 2014 to search for precursors (a possible activity of the
Global characteristics of GRBs observed with INTEGRAL and the inferred large population of low-luminosity GRBs
Context. INTEGRAL has two sensitive gamma-ray instruments that have detected and localised 47 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) from its launch in October 2002 up to July 2007. Aims. We present the spectral,
The Swift/Fermi GRB 080928 from 1 eV to 150 keV
We present the results of a comprehensive study of the gamma-ray burst 080928 and of its afterglow. GRB 080928 was a long burst detected by Swift/BAT and Fermi/GBM. It is one of the exceptional cases
New Gamma-Ray Bursts Found in the Archival Data from the IBIS/ISGRI Telescope of the INTEGRAL Observatory
A systematic search for cosmic gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and other short hard X-ray events in the archival data from the IBIS/ISGRI telescope of the INTEGRAL observatory over 2003-2018 has been carried
GRB 030406 - an extremely hard burst outside of the INTEGRAL field of view
Using the IBIS Compton mode, the INTEGRAL satellite is able to detect and localize bright and hard GRBs, which happen outside of the nominal INTEGRAL telescopes field of view. We have developed a
Multiwavelength observations of GRB 140629A
Aims.We investigate the long gamma-ray burst (GRB) 140629A through multiwavelength observations to derive the properties of the dominant jet and its host galaxy.Methods.The afterglow and host galaxy
Observation of the Second LIGO/Virgo Event Connected with a Binary Neutron Star Merger S190425z in the Gamma-Ray Range
Observations of the gravitational-wave (GW) event S190425z registered by the LIGO/Virgo detectors with the Anti-Coincidence Shield (ACS) of the gamma-ray spectrometer SPI aboard the INTEGRAL

The γ-ray burst-detection system of SPI
The determination of precise locations of γ-ray bursts is a crucial task of γ-ray astronomy. Although γ-ray burst locations can be obtained nowadays from single experiments (BATSE, COMPTEL, BeppoSax)
The First Giant Flare from SGR 1806–20: Observations Using the Anticoincidence Shield of the Spectrometer on INTEGRAL
A giant flare from the soft gamma-ray repeater SGR 1806-20 has been discovered with the International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory (INTEGRAL) on 2004 December 27 and detected by many other
Time resolved spectroscopy of GRB 030501 using INTEGRAL
The gamma-ray instruments on-board INTEGRAL offer an unique opportunity to perform time resolved analysis on GRBs. The imager IBIS allows accurate positioning of GRBs and broad band spectral
A Possible Cepheid-like Luminosity Estimator for the Long Gamma-Ray Bursts
We present a possible Cepheid-like luminosity estimator for the long gamma-ray bursts based on the variability of their light curves. To construct the luminosity estimator, we use CGRO/BATSE data for
The first BATSE gamma-ray burst catalog
The Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) has triggered on 1637 cosmic gamma-ray bursts between 1991 April 19 and 1996 August 29. These events
Frequency of fast, narrow γ-ray bursts
Early studies of the time histories of the γ-ray burst events reported by the Vela satellites led to the suggestion that very brief, ∼ 0.1 s, bursts formed a class distinct from the longer, highly
