Rapid evaluation of Swift GRBs as targets of opportunity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Swift Gamma-Ray Burst (GRB) Explorer has been discovering and localizing bursts at a rate of approximately twice per week. The afterglows for these GRBs are intriguing targets for missions like Suzaku which provide much larger collecting area and much high spectral resolution than Swift. I analyze the prospects of using rapidly available data from Swift to select those GRBs which offer the best chance of Suzaku interest, such as brightness or higher redshift.
