The distribitions of the peak areas, peak amplitudes and the rise times and fall times are presented in Figs. 2-4. The peak area is quite compatible with a lognormal distribution as shown in Fig. 2.
|Figure 2: Distribution of areas under the peaks in brightest 200 GRBs from the BATSE 4th catalog. The dashed line is a good lognormal fit to the distribution|
|Figure 4: Distribution of rise (solid) and fall (dotted) times for the peaks in brightest 200 GRBs. The cutoff at short timescales is due to the 64 millisecond time resolution of BATSE|
