Absorption Of X-rays In The Interstellar Medium
We present an improved model for the absorption of X-rays in the interstellar medium (ISM) intended for use with data from future X-ray missions with larger effective areas and increased energyExpand

Rossi X‐Ray Timing Explorer Observation of Cygnus X‐1. II. Timing Analysis
We present timing analysis for a Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) observation of Cygnus X-1 in its hard/low state. This was the first RXTE observation of Cyg X-1 taken after it transited back toExpand

A study of magnetic fields of accreting X-ray pulsars with the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer
Using a consistent set of models, we parameterized the X-ray spectra of all accreting pulsars in the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) database that exhibit cyclotron resonance scattering featuresExpand

Polarized Gamma-Ray Emission from the Galactic Black Hole Cygnus X-1
This gamma-ray emission originates from a jet of relativistic particles that is formed in close proximity to the black hole. Because of their inherently high flux allowing the detection of clearExpand

Long term variability of Cygnus X-1. I. X-ray spectral-temporal correlations in the hard state
We present the long term evolution of the timing properties of the black hole candidate Cygnus X-1 in the 0.002-128 Hz frequency range as monitored from 1998 to 2001 with the Rossi X-ray TimingExpand

The role of the reflection fraction in constraining black hole spin
In many active galaxies, the X-ray reflection features from the innermost regions of the accretion disc are relativistically distorted. This distortion allows us to measure parameters of the blackExpand

Irradiation of an accretion disc by a jet: general properties and implications for spin measurements of black holes
X-ray irradiation of the accretion disc leads to strong reflection features, which are then broadened and distorted by relativistic effects. We present a detailed, general relativistic approach toExpand

Modulated High-Energy Gamma-Ray Emission from the Microquasar Cygnus X-3
Microquasar Spotted Microquasars are binary star systems where a normal star sheds matter onto a neutron star or a black hole, generating x-ray radiation and jets of material moving at relativisticExpand
