Evidence for a Molecular Cloud Origin of Gamma-ray Bursts: Implications for the nature of star formation in the universe
It appears that the majority of rapidly and well-localized gamma-ray bursts with undetected or dark optical afterglows ("dark bursts") occur in clouds of size R ≳ 10L491/2 pc and mass M ≳ 3 × 105L49 M⊙ where L is the isotropic-equivalent peak lumin
