Abstract

The influence of matter on a radiation fireball is examined. Even when a small amount of baryonic material is present, most of the radiation energy of the fireball will be converted to a kinetic energy of the matter, and almost no electromagnetic signal will be observed. The implications of this result for several processes in which such a fireball might occur are discussed.
