Gamma Ray Burst datasets that consist of distance modulus & redshift

  1. Jun 4, 2014 #1
    Hi guys I am looking for a dataset to use in my thesis. I am working on UNION 2.1 sample of supernovea Ia data. That dataset consist of redshift and distance modulus with uncertainty (sigma) for 590 supernovea.
    Do you guys know where can i find similiar dataset for GRBs?

    try google "gamma ray burst data"

    I have tried it. Thank you for being rude. I am asking about a quite specific dataset but you do not seem to grasp that.

    try this in your google search

    "supernovae gamma ray burst datasets Union 2 pdf" The pdf additive tends to pull up the professional papers more often.

    pulls up numerous articles including this one

    "Testing the consistency of Gamma Ray Burst data-set and Supernovae Union2"
    Constraining the Anisotropy of the Universe from Supernovae and Gamma-ray Bursts

    not sure if those will work for you, but different forms of search parameters with the pdf additive can often work wonders or mislead lol

    Here is one that may [or may not] be useful - http://arxiv.org/abs/0808.2655. It is, however, less extensive than Union 2.1.

    Forgot to add if you look at the various articles references you should be able to find more
