Gamma-Ray Bursts: Progress, Problems and Prospects
by Bing Zhang, Peter Meszaros
Publisher: arXiv 2008
Number of pages: 87
The cosmological gamma-ray burst (GRB) phenomenon is reviewed. The broad observational facts and empirical phenomenological relations of the GRB prompt emission and afterglow are outlined. A well-tested, successful fireball shock model is introduced in a pedagogical manner. Several important uncertainties in the current understanding of the phenomenon are reviewed.

Clusters of galaxies are the most recently assembled, massive, bound structures in the Universe. Given their masses, clusters strongly deform space-time in their vicinity. Clusters act as the most powerful gravitational lenses in the Universe.
