Dynamical Evidence for a Black Hole in the Microquasar XTE J1550-564
Optical spectroscopic observations of the companion star (type G8 IV to K4 III) in the microquasar system XTE J1550-564 reveal a radial velocity curve with a best-fitting spectroscopic period of PspExpand

Dynamical Formation of Close Binary Systems in Globular Clusters
We know from observations that globular clusters are very efficient catalysts in forming unusual short-period binary systems or their offspring, such as low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs; neutron starsExpand

The evolution of the timing properties of the black-hole transient GX 339-4 during its 2002/2003 outburst
We present the results of the timing and color analysis of more than two hundred RXTE/PCA observations of the bright black-hole transient GX 339-4 obtained during its 2002/2003 outburst. TheExpand

Correlated X-ray Spectral and Timing Behavior of the Black Hole Candidate
We present an analysis of data of the black hole candidate and X-ray transient XTE J1550-564, taken with the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer between 1998 November 22 and 1999 May 20. During this periodExpand

The magnetic nature of disk accretion onto black holes
Although disk accretion onto compact objects—white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes—is central to much of high-energy astrophysics, the mechanisms that enable this process have remainedExpand

A Unified Description of the Timing Features of Accreting X-Ray Binaries
We study an empirical model for a unified description of the power spectra of accreting neutron stars and black holes. This description is based on a superposition of multiple Lorentzians and offersExpand
