Title: GeV neutrinos from collisional heating in GRBs: Detection prospects with IceCube-DeepCore

The observed gamma-ray burst (GRB) emission may be due to jet reheating via nuclear collisions. The role of this collisional heating can be probed through the observation of 10–100 GeV neutrinos, which are generated in nuclear collisions along with gamma rays. Neutrino and gamma-ray luminosities are closely related, which further aids observations. If the main mechanism behind the production of GRBs is collisional heating then IceCube-DeepCore could detect the GeV-neutrino emission of GRBs with a few years of observation.
