Redshifts of the Gamma-Ray Bursts and the Star Formation Rate
A. Meszaros, Z. Bagoly, L.G. Balazs, I. Horvath

A model-independent study is provided to obtain consequences about the redshifts of the gamma-ray bursts collected in the BATSE Catalog. The short and the long subgroups are studied separately.It is obtained that the redshift distribution of the long bursts may wellbe proportional to the star formation rate. For the short burststhis hardly can happen.
