On Monday, 27th of November 2017 at the Amphitheater A1 of the Recotrate at the University of Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Prof. Dr Remo Ruffini, the director of the International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics Network (ICRANet) and Professor of Theoretical physics at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, will give a talk titled
In gamma-ray astronomy, gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are extremely energetic explosions that have been observed in distant galaxies. They are the brightest electromagnetic events known to occur in the universe.
Within the lecture, Prof. Ruffini will present for the very first time the article accepted today in The Astrophysical Journal titled “Early X-ray Flares in GRBs” which deals with the analysis of the early X-ray flares in the GRB “flare-plateau-afterglow” (FPA) phase observed by Swift-XRT X-ray telescope.
This result will fundamentally change our 40-year old understanding of gamma-ray bursts, after nearly a year of checking all the data presented in the paper.
The University of Tuzla and the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics are honoured that such a scientific discovery will for the first time in the world be presented at our University.
After the lecture, in the presence of H.E. the Ambassador of the Republic of Italy, the university management, students and representatives of the government of Tuzla and Tuzla Canton, an Agreement of collaboration between the University of Tuzla and ICRANet will be signed.
We call on all interested individuals, media and organisations to join us in what will truly be a scientific “treat”!

Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics
