[78.01] Two statiatical tests on BATSE 3B sample.

M. Borumand, W. Klu\'zniak (University of Wisconsin-Madison)

.Models in which GRB sources are distributed in a disk or in intersecting planes are inconsistent at the 7\sigma level with the mean value of C_min/C_max determined for 657 BATSE GRBs. This conclusion does not depend on the \mbox position of GRBs in the sky.

We have also analyzed the directional data on 1122 BATSE GRBs to test earlier claims of departure from a random distribution in galactic longitude. Using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, we found no evidence for any departure from isotropy.
