RXTE observations of Hercules X-1 during the 1998 July short high state

Abstract:

We present RXTE monitoring of the eclipsing X-ray binary Hercules X-1 conducted over the short high state of 1998 July. This was one of the last major short high states before the source entered an anomalous low state of activity. A comparison with previous epochs finds no evidence for special behavior during these observations. We determine orbital and pulsar spin periods to facilitate measurements of Ṗspin and Ṗorb during the subsequent anomalous low state and the next epoch of high-state a...
