Transient sources are celestial objects that are not always visible in the sky, alternating short periods of time when they are very bright (known as outbursts) with longer periods when they are not visible at all. Dario Carbone explores one of the most important parameters in the characterisation of these sources, which is their rate, i.e. the number of transient outbursts per unit area and per unit time.
