Revisiting the Spectral Energy Correlations of GRBs with Fermi Data. I. Model-wise Properties.
Abstract (from CDS):
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) exhibit a diversity of spectra. Several spectral models (e.g., Band, cutoff power law (CPL), and blackbody) and their hybrid versions (e.g., Band+blackbody) have been widely used to fit the observed GRB spectra. Here, we attempt to collect all the bursts detected by Fermi/GBM with known redshifts from 2008 July to 2022 May, having been motivated to (i) provide a parameter catalog independent of the official Fermi/GBM team and (ii) achieve a “clean” model-based GRB spectral energy correlation analysis. A nearly complete GRB sample is created, containing 153 such bursts (136 long GRBs and 17 short GRBs). Using the sample and by performing detailed spectral analysis and model comparisons, we investigate two GRB spectral energy correlations: the correlation of the cosmological rest-frame peak energy (Ep,z) of the νFν prompt emission spectrum with (i) the isotropic-bolometric-equivalent emission energy Eγ,iso (the Amati relation) and (ii) the isotropic-bolometric-equivalent peak luminosity Lp,iso (the Yonetoku relation). From a linear regression analysis, a tight correlation between Ep,z and Eγ,iso (and Lγ,iso) is found for both Band-like and CPL-like bursts (except for CPL-like long burst Ep,z-Eγ,iso correlation). More interestingly, CPL-like bursts do not fall on the Band-like burst Amati and Yonetoku correlations, suggesting distinct radiation processes, and pointing to the fact that these spectral energy correlations are tightly reliant on the model-wise properties.
