Description

In its almost 5 years mission, the Large Area Telescope (LAT) onboard the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope has detected around 40 Gamma-Ray Bursts above 100 MeV. The high energy observations of Gamma-ray Bursts by Fermi-LAT gave rise to many recent theoretical challenges. The talk will present an overview of the general properties of GRBs in the high energy band and their theoretical implications.
