[36.02] Gamma Ray Bursts: Theory

M. Rees (Institute of Astronomy)

This talk will discuss, in the context of the latest data, possible mechanisms for the ganna-ray emission itself and for the afterglow. The nature of the primary "trigger" for the phenomenon will be addressed. There will be an emphasis on key issues that could well be settled in the next year or two.
