We construct a new catalog of extragalactic X-ray binaries (XRBs) by matching the latest Chandra source catalog with local galaxy catalogs. Our XRB catalog contains 4430 XRBs hosted by 237 galaxies within ∼130 Mpc. As XRBs dominate the X-ray activity in galaxies, the catalog enables us to study the correlations between the total X-ray luminosity of a galaxy LX,tot, star formation rate $\dot{\rho }_\star$, and stellar mass M⋆. As previously reported, LX,tot is correlated with $\dot{\rho }_… Expand

High Mass X-ray Binaries as a Star Formation Rate Indicator in Distant Galaxies
Based on CHANDRA observations of nearby starburst galaxies and RXTE/ASM, ASCA and MIR-KVANT/TTM studies of high mass X-ray binary (HMXB) populations in the Milky Way and Magellanic Clouds, we proposeExpand
X-ray binaries as the origin of nebular He II emission in low-metallicity star-forming galaxies
The origin of nebular He II emission, which is frequently observed in low-metallicity (O/H) star-forming galaxies, remains largely an unsolved question. Using the observed anticorrelation of theExpand
X-ray emission from star-forming galaxies – I. High-mass X-ray binaries
Based on a homogeneous set of X-ray, infrared and ultraviolet observations from Chandra, Spitzer, GALEX and 2MASS archives, we study populations of high-mass X-ray binaries (HMXBs) in a sample of 29Expand
