    A major leap forward in understanding the source of cosmic GRBs was made when the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) was launched aboard the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory in BATSE had an all-sky monitor that was capable of detecting a GRB virtually anywhere in the sky. The intensity distribution of gamma-ray bursts, showing the clear deviation from the -3/2 power-law expected if the gamma-ray bursts were homogeneously distributed in Euclidean space. Figure 5.

This plateau is consistent with the expected jet crossing time, provided that the ejecta is of order of a few percent of solar masses.

The first catalog (IB) of BATSE bursts (Fishman et al. ) consisted of bursts and covered the time interval from April 19 until March 5. The second catalog (2B) extends the time interval to March 9 and com-prises bursts (Meegan et al. ). In this paper, we present the third BATSE catalog of gamma-ray bursts (3B).

Overview This database table comprises the gamma-ray bursts detected by the BATSE instrument on the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory (CGRO). It includes the gamma-ray bursts from the BATSE 4B Catalog (triggers throughobserved between Apand Aug ) as well as a large number of triggered bursts since the publication of the BATSE 4B Catalog.

Since its launch in April, BATSE has been continually observing gamma-ray bursts and other transient phenomena. The gamma ray burst data are published in a series of burst catalogs, which follow the naming convention "BATSE nB Gamma Ray Burst Catalog", where n is an integer beginning at 1.

No systematic effort in cataloging of these bursts has been available. In some cases the information is unpublished and in others difficult to retrieve. The first major GRB catalog was obtained by GRO with the BATSE experiment. It contains more than bursts and includes homogeneous information for each of the burst.

This is the first in a series of gamma-ray burst spectroscopy catalogs from the Burst And Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma Ray. We examine the evidence for repeating of ϒ-ray bursts in light of the BATSE 2B catalog.

The temporal coverage of the 2B-1B (non-MAXBC) data set is ≈ 1/3 smaller than that of the 1B catalog. We find evidence that the distributions of the burst statistical positional errors and of the burst fluences also differ.

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 million trillion times as bright as the Sun.

The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) The GBM includes two sets of detectors: twelve sodium iodide (NaI) scintillators, each cm in diameter by cm thick, and two cylindrical bismuth germanate (BGO) scintillators, each cm in diameter and cm in height. The 4B catalog of gamma-ray bursts includes all BATSE triggered bursts from launch until 29 August The total number of bursts isincluding bursts since the end of the 3B catalog.

The post-3B time interval includes periods when the trigger criteria were not at the nominal energy interval or intensity.

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) were discovered by American surveillance satellites in the late s. These satellites were looking for gamma rays coming from possible clandestine Soviet nuclear tests, but instead found brief but intense flashes of gamma rays coming from random directions in.

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) divide into two classes 1: ‘long’, which typically have initial durations of T 90 > 2 s, and ‘short’, with durations of T .Gamma ray bursts are distributed homogeneously on the sky.

The colours indicate the energy and duration of each burst with long duration, bright bursts appearing in red, and short duration, weak bursts .Gamma-Ray Bursts.

I. Introduction. Perhaps the greatest mystery for astronomers who look at the sky at very short wavelengths has been the incredibly brief and intense bursts of gamma-rays from seemingly random locations in the sky. A few times a day, the sky lights up with a spectacular flash, or burst, of gamma-rays.
