Gamma ray burst source statistics in the presence of stochastic errors
Received 29 March 1996 / Accepted 13 January 1997
Selection effects, connected with stochastic errors in source flux and threshold value determination are analyzed. Normal and normal logarithmic distributions of stochastic deviations are considered. These two kind of distributions produce different effects on the source statistics. Applications to Gamma Ray Burst statistics are discussed. A physical test for checking a close neutron star model of GRBs is suggested.
