We better determine the spectral flux distribution of the supernova candidate associated with GRB 970228 by modeling the spectral flux distribution of the host galaxy of this burst, fitting this model to measurements of the host galaxy, and using the fitted model to better subtract out the contribution of the host galaxy to measurements of the afterglow of this burst. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    High-redshift gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) offer several advantages when studying the distant Universe, providing unique information about the structure and properties of the galaxies in which they exploded. Spectroscopic identification with large ground-based telescopes has improved our knowledge of...

    Long-duration GRBs and X-ray flashes (XRFs; softer-spectrum brethren of long GRBs) are thought to occur following the core-collapse of massive stars. We report here on observations of a recent X-ray flash (XRF 060428B) that occurred 2.6″ in projection from the center of a massive red...

    Long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) provide a premier tool for studying high-redshift star-forming galaxies thanks to their extreme brightness and association with massive stars. Here we use GRBs to study the galaxy mass-metallicity (M*-Z) relation at z∼3-5, where conventional direct...

    The core-collapse of a massive star may lead either to a black hole or a, possibly unstable, rapidly-rotating magnetar. A magnetar provides an potential additional source of rotational energy which is available to power emission during the burst. If the energy reservoir is used up the magnetar...

    SN 1996cr, located in the Circinus Galaxy (3.7 Mpc, z∼0.001) was non-detected in X-rays at ∼1000 days yet brightened to Lx∼4×1039 erg/s (0.5-8 keV) after 10 years (Bauer et al. 2008). A 1-D hydrodynamic model of the ejecta-CSM interaction produces good agreement with the...

    Some theoretical studies on the origin of long gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) using stellar evolution models suggest that a low metallicity environment may be a necessary condition for a GRB to occur (Z<=several×10-1Z⊙). It has also been suggested from the observations that GRBs...

    We have conducted the first dedicated spectroscopic survey of long-duration gamma-ray burst (LGRB) host galaxies at z<1, and use these observations along with data from the literature to determine a wide range of ISM properties and a statistically robust mass-metallicity relation. LGRBs have...

    We describe the current status and recent results from our Swift/VLT legacy survey, a VLT Large Programme aimed at characterizing the host galaxies of a homogeneously selected sub-sample of Swift gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The immediate goals are to determine the host luminosity function, study...
