Gamma-Ray Bursts: Progress, Problems and Prospects
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 87

Description:
The cosmological gamma-ray burst (GRB) phenomenon is reviewed. The broad observational facts and empirical phenomenological relations of the GRB prompt emission and afterglow are outlined. A well-tested, successful fireball shock model is introduced in a pedagogical manner. Several important uncertainties in the current understanding of the phenomenon are reviewed.
