J/ApJS/169/62         GRB database of spectral lags             (Hakkila+, 2007)

A gamma-ray burst database of BATSE spectral lag and internal luminosity function values. Hakkila J., Giblin T.W., Young K.C., Fuller S.P., Peters C.D., Nolan C., Sonnett S.M., Haglin D.J., Roiger R.J. <Astrophys. J. Suppl. Ser., 169, 62-74 (2007)> =2007ApJS..169...62H
ADC_Keywords: Gamma rays Keywords: gamma rays: bursts - methods: data analysis Abstract: We present a database of spectral lags and internal luminosity function (ILF) measurements for gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) in the BATSE catalog. Measurements were made using 64ms count rate data and are defined for various combinations of the four broadband BATSE energy channels. File Summary:

Note (1): An indicator of the operator who made the measurement (used to search for systematic measurement errors) Note (2): Uncertainty flag, defined as follows: 0 = the uncertainty is taken from the measurements; 1 = the uncertainty has been obtained using eq. (1) and Table 3; 2 = a lag near zero was assigned a minimum uncertainty of 32ms.

Note (1): These data represent the best-fits to the Internal Luminosity Functions (Ψ(L)) of BATSE gamma-ray bursts. In fitting these data, a model of the form Ψ(L)=C(Lα).dexp(β*L2) is assumed. All attempted fits have been included in this table, including poor ones. Note (2): The quality factor q indicates the acceptability of each fit, and is based on the number of degrees of freedom available for the fit. A value of q=2 indicates a high-quality fit, a value of q=1 indicates an acceptable fit, and a value of q=0 indicates a poor fit that should in general not be used.
