# Time evolution of the probability density function of a gamma-ray burst: a possible indication of the turbulent origin of gamma-ray bursts

@article{Bhatt2011TimeEO, title={Time evolution of the probability density function of a gamma-ray burst: a possible indication of the turbulent origin of gamma-ray bursts}, author={Nilay Bhatt and Subir Bhattacharyya}, journal={Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society}, year={2011}, volume={420}, pages={1706-1713} }

The time series of a gamma-ray burst (GRB) is a non-stationary time series and all of its statistical properties vary with time. Considering that each GRB is a different manifestation of the same stochastic process, we have studied the time-dependent and time-averaged probability density functions (pdfs), which characterize the underlying stochastic process. The pdfs are fitted with a Gaussian distribution function. It has been argued that the Gaussian pdfs possibly indicate the turbulent…
