On the Intrinsic Simplicity of Spectral Variability of GRBs

A. Chernenko

Abstract


In this paper we present a Multi-Scale Correlation Analysis (MSCA) of the light curves of gamma-ray bursts recorded in different energy ranges. This analysis allows us to identify time intervals where emission variability can be reduced to a single physical parameter and can therefore be robustly attributed to a single physical emitter. The properties of these intervals can then be investigated separately, and the spectral properties of individual emitters can be analysed. The signatures of hidden dynamical relations between individual emitters are also discussed.
