Description

As the most powerful explosion that occurs in the universe, gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are one of the most exciting topics being studied in astrophysics. Creating more energy than the Sun does in its entire lifetime, GRBs create a blaze of light that will outshine every other object visible in the sky, enabling us to measure galaxies that are several million years old. As an expert in this field, Professor Andrew Levan describes the fascinating history of these astronomical occurrences and details our current understanding of GRBs as well as their implementations. GRBs cover various areas of astronomy, and interest in them reaches a wide range of fields. The science behind them is rapidly moving and this book examines the knowledge that we now have and the questions that are continually being raised. Predominantly aimed at PhD students and researchers in the area, Gamma-ray Bursts addresses this fascinating topic and outlines the principles and initial applications of a fascinating astronomical phenomena.
