Description

Impressively, gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) release the same amount of energy in a mere matter of seconds as the sun does in its lifetime. Gamma-ray Burst Correlations presents an overview of the observational correlations, their physical interpretations, their use as redshift estimators and their potential use as cosmological tools. Maria Dainotti describes the existing correlations as well as breaching the possible meaning and controversy behind the results and the applicability of several GRB correlations as model discriminators and cosmological indicators. A description of selection bias and the attempts made so far in order to use them as standard candles can help scientists to find the way and the key to solve this puzzling problem. As an ever-expanding topic, this book will reach a wide audience, including students and researchers within the astronomical community.

Author Biography

Maria Dainotti received her PhD in Relativistic Astrophysics from the University of Rome La Sapienza. She has since then focussed her research on high energy astrophysics, gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and related astrophysical phenomena. Her research has led her to discover several important GRB relations bringing her name (the so-called Dainotti relations) and how to use GRBs as valuable cosmological tools. She is currently working at Stanford University supported by a Chretien AAS International grant and concurrently serving as assistant professor at Jagiellonian University.
