A Global Spectral Study of Black Hole X-ray Binaries

Abstract:

(Abridged) We report on a consistent and comprehensive spectral analysis of the X-ray emission of 25 Black Hole X-ray Binaries. All publicly available observations of the black hole binaries in the RXTE archive were analysed. Three different types of model were fitted to investigate the spectral changes occurring during an outburst. For the population, as well as each binary and each outburst from each binary, we construct two diagnostic diagrams. The Hardness Intensity/Luminosity Diagram (HI...
