Outstanding Thesis Awarded to Francisco Javier Virgili

Apr 18, 2008
Outstanding Thesis

The 2008 recipient for the Outstanding Thesis Award in the College of Sciences is Francisco Javier Virgili. His thesis, entitled, “Monte Carlo Analysis of the Luminosity Function of Gamma Ray Bursts,” applies the Monte Carlo simulation technique to constrain gamma-ray burst (GRB) luminosity function (number of GRBs as a function their luminosities) using a set of observational criteria. In particular, he focused on the possibility that low-luminosity GRBs might form a distinct new component. This is a theoretical investigation with the application of observational data.
