The Radio Afterglows of Gamma-Ray Bursts

  • Dale A. Frail
Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY, volume 99)

Summary

Radio afterglow observations continue to provide complementary and sometimes unique diagnostics on gamma-ray burst explosions, their progenitors and their environments. In this review we will first describe current search strategies and the observational properties of the detected sample. In the second part of this review we will follow the evolution of a typical radio afterglow, describe the diverse phenomenology that is observed, and interpret these observations within the framework of the fireball model.
