Session 9 - High-Energy Phenomena.
Display session, Monday, June 08
We analysed the angular distribution of the \gamma-ray bursts by a more sensitive statistics to clustering signals based on the angualr two-point correlation method. The evidence of \gamma-ray burst clustering with 99.85% confidence level is found at a characteristic angular scale of 12^o. The statistical method is described in details. This result, the small scale anisotropy, suggests that the origins of gamma-ray bursts are nearby instead of cosmological distance.
