The enigma of the Fast Radio Bursts

 

ABSTRACT

The Fast Radio Burst (FRBs) are millisecond duration dispersed radio transients signals which have now been observed at various radio telescopes and frequencies, but the origin of which is still enigmatic. The secure identification of the host galaxy for one the bursts has recently confirmed the extra galactic nature of these events, renewing the hopes of exploiting them for unprecedented studies of cosmology and of the baryonic content of the Universe. After reviewing the main properties of the FRBs, the presentation will focus on the ongoing lines of research about these targets.
