    The observations of GRB 23 demonstrate several things about gamma-ray bursts. First, some subset of GRBs do exhibit optical bursts with fluctuations as violent as the gamma-ray variations.   Abstract. The role of the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) in the study of Gamma-ray Bursts (GRBs) is reviewed. Through April , the All-Sky Monitor (ASM) and the ProportionalCoun ter Array (PCA) instruments have detected 30 GRBs.

    Get this from a library! Gamma-ray bursts. [Chryssa Kouveliotou; Ralph Antoine Marie Joseph Wijers; Stanford E Woosley;] -- A comprehensive graduate-level review of GRB astrophysics and its history, featuring the latest research by an international team of experts. "This book gives a balanced and up-to-date overview of the field of gamma-ray bursts, one that will be useful for astronomers, physicists, and other scientists. Until now, there have been no books that I know of that deal with this subject for a broader audience of scientists and educated lay people."—Ralph A.M.J. Wijers, University of Amsterdam. Gamma ray bursts are distributed homogeneously on the sky. This image shows the locations of the Gamma ray bursts detected by BATSE projected in galactic coordinates (the Milky Way stretches horizontally across the centre of the figure). The colours indicate the energy and duration of each burst with long duration, bright bursts appearing in red, and short duration, weak bursts in purple.

    We present the results of observations of the soft gamma-ray early afterglows with energy more than keV from two bright Gamma-ray bursts GRB and GRB detected by the PHEBUS instrument. Both gamma-ray bursts are strong events and give sta-tistically significant count rate in all 6 detectors of the PHEBUS instrument. Book Description. Gamma-ray bursts are the brightest--and, until recently, among the least understood--cosmic events in the universe. Discovered by chance during the cold war, these evanescent high-energy explosions confounded astronomers for decades. The Mystery of the Gamma-Ray Bursts. Learning Objectives. Networking to Catch More Bursts. After initial observations showed that the precise locations and afterglows of gamma-ray bursts could be found, astronomers set up a system to catch and pinpoint bursts on a regular basis. But to respond as quickly as needed to obtain usable results.

Scientists have studied gamma-ray bursts, which are triggered by ebook collapse of massive stars, for three decades. Now, one is forcing them to reconsider what they thought they knew.
