Gamma ray bursts and gravitational waves

Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) satellite suggest that the recently discovered gravitational wave source, a pair of two coalescing black holes, detected by LIGO, was related to a gamma-ray burst. We wrote an article about a plausible theoretical scenario that might have led to such an event. The preprint of this article, “On the gamma-ray burst — gravitational wave association in GW150914″ is available here. Authors: Agnieszka Janiuk, Michał Bejger, Szymon Charzyński and Petra Sukova.
