Connection between the star formation rate and the gamma-ray bursts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

It is remarkable that the long gamma-ray bursts, as objects connected with the supernovae - i.e. with the end-stages of massive stars, trace the star formation rate. This connection is discussed in this contribution. The presentation is in essence a recapitulation of the article by Mészáros et al. (2006).
