Gamma-ray bursts and dark energy–dark matter interaction

In this work, gamma-ray burst (GRB) data are used to place constraints on a putative coupling between dark energy and dark matter. Type Ia supernovae constraints from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey II (SDSS-II) first-year results, the cosmic microwave background radiation shift parameter from Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe seven year results and the baryon acoustic oscillation peak from the SDSS are also discussed. The prospects for the field are assessed, as more GRB events become available.

Keywords: gamma-ray burst: general; cosmological parameters; dark energy; dark matter
