Some Questions of Gamma-Ray Bursts

Conference paper
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 298)

Abstract

There have been great and rapid progresses in the field of γ-ray bursts since BeppoSAX and other telescopes discovered their afterglows in 1997. In this talk, the main observational facts of γ-ray bursts and their afterglows, and the standard fireball shock model are reviewed briefly. And then, some questions personally chosen are discussed.
