Abstract

With the early afterglow localizations of gamma-ray burst positions made by Swift, the clear delimitation of the prompt phase and the afterglow is not so obvious anymore. It is important to see weather the two phases have the same origin or they stem from different parts of the progenitor system. We will combine the two kinds of gamma-ray burst data from the Swift-XRT instrument (windowed timing and photon counting modes) and from BAT. A thorough desription of the applied procedure is given. We apply various binning techniques to the different data: Bayes blocks, exponential binning and signalto-noise type of binning. We present a handful of flux curves and their possible applications.
