We present a multiwavelength study of GRB 151027A. This is the 999th gamma-ray burst detected by the Swift satellite and it has a densely sampled emission in the X-ray and optical band and has been observed and detected in the radio up to 140 days after the prompt. The multiwavelength light curve from 500 s to 140 days can be modelled through a standard forward shock afterglow, but it requires an additional emission component to reproduce the early X-ray and optical emission. We present optical… Expand

The composition of ejecta is still an unsolved question in gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). Some previous studies have been suggested that the prompt emission in GRBs consists of several components givingExpand
The Late-time Radio Behavior of Gamma-ray Burst Afterglows: Testing the Standard Model
We examine a sample of 21 gamma-ray burst (GRB) afterglow light curves at radio frequencies and compare them to the X-ray and/or optical properties of the afterglows and to the predictions of theExpand
On the Ultra-relativistic Prompt Emission, the Hard and Soft X-Ray Flares, and the Extended Thermal Emission in GRB 151027A
We analyze GRB 151027A within the binary-driven hypernova (BdHN) approach, with progenitor a carbon-oxygen core on the verge of a supernova (SN) explosion and a binary companion neutron star (NS).Expand
East Asia VLBI Network observations of the TeV Gamma-Ray Burst 190114C
Observations of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) at Very High Energy (VHE) offer a unique opportunity to investigate particle acceleration processes, magnetic fields and radiation fields in these events. VeryExpand
A Study of the Gamma-Ray Burst Fundamental Plane
Long gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with a plateau phase in their X-ray afterglows obeys a three-dimensional (3D) relation (Dainotti et al. 2016), between the rest-frame time at the end of the plateau, Ta,Expand
The morphology of the X-ray afterglows and of the jetted GeV emission in long GRBs
We recall evidence that long gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have binary progenitors and give new examples. Binary-driven hypernovae (BdHNe) consist of a carbon-oxygen core (COcore) and a neutron star (NS)Expand
Investigating Subphotospheric Dissipation in Gamma-Ray Bursts Using Joint Fermi–Swift Observations
The jet photosphere has been proposed as the origin for the gamma-ray burst (GRB) prompt emission. In many such models, characteristic features in the spectra appear below the energy range of theExpand
A comprehensive view of blackbody components in the X-ray spectra of GRBs
A small fraction of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) exhibit blackbody emission in the X-ray spectra, the origin of which is debated. In order to gain a more complete understanding of this phenomenon, weExpand
The Konus-Wind catalog of gamma-ray bursts with known redshifts. I. Bursts detected in the triggered mode
In this catalog, we present the results of a systematic study of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with reliable redshift estimates detected in the triggered mode of the Konus-Wind (KW) experiment during theExpand
A Unified Model for GRB Prompt Emission from Optical to $\gamma$-Rays: Exploring GRBs as Standard Candles
The origin of prompt emission from gamma ray bursts remains to be an open question. Correlated prompt optical and gamma-ray emission observed in a handful of GRBs strongly suggests a common emissionExpand


A search for thermal X-ray signatures in gamma-ray bursts - I. Swift bursts with optical supernovae
The X-ray spectra of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) can generally be described by an absorbed power law. The landmark discovery of thermal X-ray emission in addition to the power law in the unusual GRBExpand

GRB 130925A is a peculiar event characterized by an extremely long gamma-ray duration (7?ks), as well as dramatic flaring in the X-rays for 20?ks. After this period, its X-ray afterglow shows anExpand
An unusual supernova in the error box of the γ-ray burst of 25 April 1998

Photosphere Emission in the X-Ray Flares of Swift Gamma-Ray Bursts and Implications for the Fireball Properties
