Invited talk in the parallel session High and Very High Energy emission from Gamma Ray Bursts High and Very High Energy Emission from Gamma-Ray Bursts


Sylvia Zhu (DESY)


In the last few years, gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been detected at Very High Energy (>100 GeV) gamma rays for the first time since their initial discovery half a century ago. This breakthrough occurred thanks to years of technical and strategic improvements (as well as a bit of good luck). In this talk, I will give an overview of the H.E.S.S. GRB program — how H.E.S.S. follows up GRBs, how this has evolved, where we are pushing further — and discuss some of the latest highlights.
