The metallicity dependence of the long-duration GRB rate from host galaxy luminosities

Abstract:

We investigate the difference between the host galaxy properties of core-collapse supernovae and long-duration gamma-ray bursts (LGRBs), and quantify a possible metallicity dependence of the efficiency of producing LGRBs. We use a sample of 16 CC SNe and 16 LGRBs from Fruchter et al. (2006) which have similar redshift distributions to eliminate galaxy evolution biases. We make a forward prediction of their host galaxy luminosity distributions from the overall cosmic metallicity distribution o...
