The Formation and Evolution of Black-Hole Binaries

  • Roger W. Romani (a1)

Extract

The presence of accreting black holes (BH) among the X-ray binaries has been recognized for many years. Traditionally, Cyg X-1 and the handful of other candidates have been thought of as cousins of the HMXB neutron star systems. Recent studies of the soft X-ray transients such as A 0620-00 have, however, shown that the dynamical evidence makes these low-mass systems very strong black-hole candidates. Further, analysis of the eventual end-states of various high-mass X-ray binaries suggest that some could end as observable BH-pulsar binaries, although the first such system is yet to be discovered.
