    • Multi-band observations of gamma ray bursts

      This talk focuses on the various aspects we learnt from multiband observations of GRBs both, before and during the afterglow era. A statistical analysis to estimate the probable redshifts of host galaxies using the luminosity function of GRBs compatible with both the afterglow redshift data as well as the overall population of GRBs is discussed. We then address the question whether the observed fields of GRBs with precise localizations from third Inter-Planetary Network (IPN3) contain suitable candidates for their host galaxies.

    • Potential UV standards for UVIT filter system

      We propose a set of eleven faint UV white dwarf stars as potential UV standards for the UVIT filter system on-board AstroSat mission. Synthetic photometry of these stars has been carried out using the in-orbit filter curves of UVIT, GALEX, UVOT and model spectra in the literature. The synthetic photometry of GALEX and UVOT is well correlated with their respective observations. The synthetic UVIT photometry is found to be strongly correlated with that of GALEX. The UV extinction $A_\lambda$ for these stars has beencomputed using CCM-89 extinction model and its value for the $\lambda_{\rm mean}$ of each UVIT filter band has been listed. These results motivate us to recommend this set of stars as additional UVIT flux calibrators.

    • Continuous Article Publication

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
