The Wide World of
GRB progenitors
• Because GRBs and
Hypernovae are
relatively rare, exotic
scenarios for
progenitors remain
• Although this talk is
focused on Black Hole
Accretion Disk
progenitors, many of
the characteristics of
NS progenitors are
Short Duration Bursts:
• Merger of 2 compact objects: NS/NS (do they form BHs?), BH/NS
(many do not produce disk), BH/WD, NS/WD (disk too wide to produce
short bursts?).
• The distribution of the debris from the merger will play a role in timing.
But the compact merger likely travels beyond the star formation site
(stellar mass ejection unimportant in observed properties).
Long Duration Bursts:
• Collapsar Models: Can be produced in single and binary stars. Single
star models require high rotation with minimal angular momentum loss
in winds (perhaps rotationally-induced mixing can help?). Binary
systems are used to i) remove the hydrogen envelope without losing
angular momentum, ii) spinning up the stellar core (through a merger or
orbital coupling)
• Helium-merger models (the merger of a star with a compact object –
who named these?): inspiral of compact object both ejects outer layers
and spins up the soon-to-be accreting material.
• Environments surrounding both models tightly tied to stellar
winds/binary mass ejection.
There are a wide
set of
progenitors for
each of these
models. Let’s
review the Hemerger
progenitors as
an example:

Putting it all together: providing detailed
density profiles to model GRB jets.
Putting the time variable wind
profiles will produce noisy
density profiles, presumably
with clumps.
Multi-dimensional profiles are
ultimately necessary, but are doable.
SN 2008D/XRO 08019
• While observing SN
2007uy, Swift discovered an
X-ray outburst lasting ~600s.
• Subsequent observations
classify this supernova as a
type Ib.
• Many models of initial X-ray
outburst, most focusing on
shock breakout.
• Frey et al., modeling shock
breakout, could match the
duration/shape with binary
CE ejection, but not the
luminosity – is it a shock
hitting an LBV outburst?
Cassiopeia A: A well constrained core-collapse SN
• Cas A is a well studied remnant,
with constraints on yield,
explosion energy, and ejecta
mass. Recently, an integrated
spectrum has been observed
through light echoes. More data
expected (NuSTAR will map the
44Ti production).
• Progenitor likely to be from a
binary – CE needed to eject most
of the hydrogen in a 16 solar
mass star.
• Dwek & Arendt (2008) argued
that a burst of X-ray photons was
required to explain the IR
hotspots. Fryer et al. (2010)
argue that LBV shells are
required to match this data.
• For compact mergers, detailed predictions
of the accretion rate onto the disk might be
doable – timing in the engine.
• For massive star long-duration burst
progenitors, engine perturbations will be
difficult to predict. But we can differentiate
the surrounding environment – ongoing
work on both CE and wind/LBV phases.
Supernovae may provide hints.
