Optical Flash and Radio Flare in Wind Environment

Abstract

The interaction of a relativistic fireball with its ambient medium is described through two shocks: a reverse shock that propagates into the fireball, and a forward shock that propagates into the medium. We here study very early afterglows from the reverse and forward shocks in winds. An optical flash arises from both the relativistic reverse and forward shock while a radio flare is produced by the forward shock.
