An upper observable black hole mass scale for tidal destruction events with thermal X-ray spectra

Abstract:

We comprehensively model the X-ray luminosity emergent from time-dependent relativistic accretion discs, developing analytical models of the X-ray luminosity of thermal disc systems as a function of black hole mass M, disc mass Md, and disc α-parameter. The X-ray properties of these solutions will be directly relevant for understanding tidal disruption event (TDE) observations. We demonstrate an extremely strong suppression of thermal X-ray luminosity from large mass black holes, LX ∼ exp (− ...
