Abstract

Gamma-ray bursts are the most luminous objects known: they outshine their host galaxies making them ideal candidates for probing large-scale structure. Earlier it has been found that the angular distribution of different groups of GRBs (long, intermediate and short) show deviation from the full randomness at different levels (e.g. Vavrek et al. (2008)). In the current sample there are more than 361 GRBs with position and redshift: the large scale homogeneous and isotropic distribution were checked with nearest-neighbour tests and with the two-point correlation function.
