We present an XMM-Newton observation of the massive edge-on Sb galaxy NGC 2613. We discover that this galaxy contains a deeply embedded active nucleus with a 0.3-10 keV luminosity of 3.3 x 10 40 erg s -1 and a line-of-sight absorption column of 1.2 × 10 23 cm -2 . Within the 25 mag arcsec -2 optical B-band isophote of the galaxy, we detect an additional four sources with an accumulated luminosity of 4.3 x 10 39 erg s -1 . The bulk of the unresolved X-ray emission spatially follows the near… Expand

TLDR
This presentation focuses on the global hot gas in and around galaxies, especially normal ones like the authors' own, where Chandra observations have led to the first characterization of the spatial, thermal, chemical, and kinetic properties of the gas in their galaxy. Expand
X-ray coronae in simulations of disc galaxy formation
The existence of X-ray luminous gaseous coronae around massive disc galaxies is a long-standing prediction of galaxy formation theory in the cold dark matter cosmogony. This prediction has garneredExpand
HOT GAS HALOS AROUND DISK GALAXIES: CONFRONTING COSMOLOGICAL SIMULATIONS WITH OBSERVATIONS
Models of disk galaxy formation commonly predict the existence of an extended reservoir of accreted hot gas surrounding massive spirals at low redshift. As a test of these models, we use X-ray and HαExpand
