Abstract

Fireball model of the gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) predicts generation of numerous internal shocks, which efficiently accelerate charged particles and generate relatively small-scale stochastic magnetic and electric fields. The accelerated particles diffuse in space due to interaction with the random waves and so emit so called Diffusive Synchrotron Radiation (DSR) in contrast to standard synchrotron radiation they would produce in a large-scale regular magnetic fields. In this contribution we present key results of detailed modeling of the GRB spectral parameters, which demonstrate that the non-perturbative DSR emission mechanism in a strong random magnetic field is consistent with observed distributions of the Band parameters and also with cross-correlations between them.
