Title: GeV EMISSION DURING X-RAY FLARES FROM LATE INTERNAL SHOCKS: APPLICATION TO GRB 100728A

Recently, the GeV radiation during the X-ray flare activity in GRB 100728A was detected by Fermi/LAT. Here, we study the dynamics and emission properties of a collision between two homogeneous shells based on the late internal shock model. The GeV photons can be produced from X-ray flare photons being upscattered by relativistic electrons that are accelerated by forward-reverse shocks, where the involved radiative processes include synchrotron self-Compton and crossing inverse-Compton scattering. Using analytical and numerical calculations, the observed spectral properties in GRB 100728A can be well explained.
