Second Annual GTA Workshop

Body

Monday August 29 through Wednesday August 31

As a follow-up to last year’s “Inaugural GRB Temporal Analysis (GTA) Workshop” held at The Ohio State University (OSU) Center for Cosmology and Astro-Particle Physics (CCAPP), the “2nd Annual GTA Workshop”, which has been sponsored by the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), will be held from August 29 – 31, 2011 at the New Mexico Consortium Center (NMC) in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

GRB Temporal Analysis Consortium (GTAC) members and invited participants will meet to collaborate on projects strategically focused upon the temporal analysis of light curves from Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs). Major topics will include the intrinsic variability timescale (via wavelets, FFT, etc.) and spectral lag (via pulse-fit paradigm, CCF, etc.) of GRB light curves, in the context of implications for the Bulk Lorentz factor, short/long class discrimination and progenitor models.
