Previous: The Afterglow Emission
The X-ray afterglow is detected in almost all cases (one of the notable
exceptions is represented by the bright GRB970111, albeit the 17 hours
delay taken to start observing).
The observed afterglows are usually characterized by a power law decaying
in optical and X-ray bands, where typical
values for are in the range , although some afterglows
show a steeper decline with .
