Abstract

present the XMM-Newton observation of GRB 040106. From the X-ray spectral index and temporal decay, we argue that the afterglow is consistent with a fireball expanding in a wind environment. A constant density environment is excluded by the data. This is one of the very few cases in which this conclusion can be drawn.
