Five different theoretical (bolometric) lightcurves from the model presented here, drawn varying the initial energy of the afterglow (Eimp), the dipole magnetic field (B) and the initial spin period (Pi,ms) of the NS. All lightcurves are obtained for the same value of k′ = 0.4. The time at which each lightcurve begins is the deceleration time Td, estimated for illustration purposes simply by equating the initial energy Eimp to the rest-mass energy of swept up matter in a constant density ISM (n ≃ 1 cm-3).
