    Gamma-Ray Bursts: The brightest explosions in the Universe (Springer Praxis Books) by Gilbert Vedrenne and Jean-Luc Atteia | Apr 7, out of 5 stars 1. "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 A BRIEF HISTORY October The U.S. Air Force launches the first in a series of “Vela” satellites carrying X-ray, gamma-ray and neutron detectors in order to monitor any nuclear testing by the Soviet Union or other nations in violation of the just-signed nuclear test ban treaty.

An analysis of gamma ray burst time histories. By Gerald R. Karr and John Patrick Lestrade. Abstract. Gamma ray burst time histories, ranging in durations from milliseconds to thousands of seconds, are as varied as the number of bursts.

They show a wide array of structures from those that are very smooth to those that contain a seemingly Author: Gerald R. Karr and John Patrick Lestrade.

If gamma‐ray bursts arise from a small number of distinctly different physical phenomena, then this might be revealed by a clustering of time profile characteristics into a small number of groups. We have applied a ‘‘spike’’ counting algorithm to GRB profiles.

Here we present graphs of spike frequency and spike amplitude versus burst intensity and duration. The Gamma-Ray burst detector on Ginga consisted of a proportional counter to observe the x-rays and a scintillation counter to observe the gamma-rays.

It was ideally suited to study the x-rays associated with gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). Ginga detected ∼ GRBs and 22 of them had sufficient statistics to determine spectra from 2 to keV. Although the Ginga and BATSE trigger criteria were. The history of gamma-ray began with the serendipitous detection of a gamma-ray burst (GRB) on July 2,by the U.S.

Vela satellites. After these satellites detected fifteen other GRBs, Ray Klebesadel of the Los Alamos National Laboratory published the first paper on the subject, Observations of Gamma-Ray Bursts of Cosmic Origin.

As more and more research was done on these mysterious events. About the Book Author. Andrew Zimmerman Jones received his physics degree and graduated with honors from Wabash College, where he earned the Harold Q.

Daniel Robbins received his PhD in physics from the University of Chicago and currently studies string theory and its implications at Texas A&M University. Andrew Levan is a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at The University of Warwick.

He has spent most of his career focussing on the origins of gamma-ray bursts and their use as cosmic probes, utilising a wide range of ground- and space-based telescopes across the electromagnetic spectrum. Gamma-ray Bursts.

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are short-lived bursts of gamma-ray light, the most energetic form of light. Lasting anywhere from a few milliseconds to several minutes, GRBs shine hundreds of times brighter than a typical supernova and about a. Shales are the most common radioactive lithology that is seen on a gamma-ray log.

However, other lithogies can generate high gamma-ray readings and their expected API values can be computed by applying the multipliers to analyses of thorium (ppm), uranium (ppm), and potassium (%), where these are available. in the burst duration variable T90 (time within which 90% of the flux arrived), suggesting the presence of two distinct types of bursts separated at T90 ≃ 2 sec.

The short bursts have systematically harder gamma-ray spectra than longer bursts. The two groups seemed indistinguishable in. A multivariate analysis of gamma-ray burst (GRB) bulk properties is presented to discriminate between distinct classes of GRBs.

Several variables representing burst duration, Ñuence, and spectral hardness are considered. Two multivariate clustering procedures are used on a sample of bursts from.

The prompt Gamma-Ray Bursts’ (GRBs) e ciency is an important clue on the emis-sion mechanism producing the -rays. Previous estimates of the kinetic energy of the blast waves, based on the X-ray afterglow luminosity L X, suggested that this e -ciency is large, with values above 90% in some cases.

This poses a problem to emission. Image caption Gamma-ray bursts can occur when two neutron stars merge. A gamma ray burst, the most powerful explosion known in the Universe, may have hit the Earth in. Early studies of the time histories of the γ-ray burst events reported by the Vela satellites led to the suggestion that very brief, ∼ s, bursts formed a class distinct from the longer.

Time histories of γ-ray bursts have revealed a great diversity, both in total duration and in the details of fine time structure. Results of the γ-ray experiment on the Helios-2 spacecraft have suggested some similarities in time profiles of events.

The possibility of some characteristic ‘separation times’ in events may also be indicated. Time profile of the burst shows sub pulses PHEBUS Gamma-Ray Bursts Experiment (8)13 1 Analysis of the short event time histories shows that there were no detected pulses coincided at all detectors with duration less then one millisecond in spite of the fact that instrument was able to detect these outbursts in a case of theirs existence.

The book also addresses over-arching issues - policy responses and methods for predicting and managing catastrophes. This is invaluable reading for anyone interested in the big issues of our time; for students focusing on science, society, technology, and public policy; and for academics, policy-makers, and professionals working in these 4/5(3).

A massive gamma ray burst witnessed by scientists around the globe is thought to be the biggest explosion ever recorded.
