Abstract

Gamma-ray bursts are candidate sources of ultra-high energy cosmic rays and neutrinos. While cosmic rays are scattered in the intervening magnetic field, neutrinos point back to their sources being charge neutral and make neutrino astronomy possible. Detection of ultrahigh energy neutrinos by future experiments such as ANITA, ANTARES, Ice-Cube and RICE can provide useful information such as particle acceleration, radiation mechanism and magnetic field about the sources and their progenitors. Detection of ultrahigh energy neutrinos which point back to their sources may establish gamma-ray bursts as the sources of GZK cosmic rays.
