Definitions: LF Radio (3 MHz to 3 GHz); HF Radio (3 GHz to 30 GHz); Microwave (30 to 300 GHz)


Model Description

This model proposes that FRBs come from neutron star collisions in dense stellar clusters at centers of galactic nuclei.


Observational Constraints

The expectation is that FRBs would be localized to centers of galaxies, or at least would be clustered with stellar density.
