A Comment on X-Ray Source Identifications

  • R. M. Thomas (a1) and P. J. N. Davison (a2)


The third Uhuru catalogue of X-ray sources (Giacconi et al. 1974) contains X-ray source positions given to a much higher precision than was previously available and this fact has given considerable impetus to the search for optical and radio counterparts. Many such identifications have now been made and confirmed, e.g. by discoveries of correlated variability.
