Are gamma-ray novae intrinsically rare or just nearby?

Abstract:

Fermi LAT data revealed classical novae as unexpected gamma-ray sources, yet only 6 of 69 of those optically detected in the first 8 years of Fermi LAT observations were confirmed as > 5? gamma-ray sources. These proceedings outline Monte Carlo simulations in which a population of Galactic novae were simulated based on spatial distributions and R-band magnitudes based on their M31 counterparts. Interstellar extinction was added using a double exponential disc model, and gamma-ray propert...
