Neutron stars and black holes in x-ray binaries

Galactic accretion driven stellar X-ray sources can be divided into groups in different ways. An important division, which covers almost all known X-ray binaries, can be made according to the mass of

The Properties of matter in white dwarfs and neutron stars

White dwarfs and neutron stars are stellar objects with masses comparable to that of our sun. However, as the endpoint stages of stellar evolution, these objects do not sustain any thermonuclear

The initial stellar masses for the formation of white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes

As is well known a star may end its nuclear lifetime as a white dwarf, neutron star, black hole or may, in certain circumstances, leave no remnant at all. The main question to be addressed in this

Stellar-Mass Black Holes in the Solar Neighborhood

We search for nearby, isolated, accreting, "stellar-mass" (3-100 M☉) black holes. Models suggest a synchrotron spectrum in visible wavelengths and some emission in X-ray wavelengths. Of 3.7 million


Black holes are among the most intriguing objects in modern physics (Alwis, 1992). It is one of the most fascinating objects in the universe, and it can be understood on the basis of Einstein’s

White Dwarfs and Neutron Stars

This chapter on the physics of compact objects begins with a section on white dwarfs. It will be shown that the famous Chandrasekhar equation is just the relativistic Thomas–Fermi equation. For white

Is the binding energy of galaxies related to their core black hole mass?

Most of the large galaxies host a supermassive black hole, but their origin is still not well understood. In this paper we look at a possible connection between the gravitational binding energies of

Search for black holes

Methods and results of searching for stellar mass black holes in binary systems and for supermassive black holes in galactic nuclei of different types are described. As of now (June 2002), a total of

White and grey holes in astrophysics

Astrophysical applications of white and grey holes are considered. Four types of anticollapsars in extended manifolds of general relativity are distinguished: canonical white and grey holes, light-

Binary black hole growth by gas accretion in stellar clusters

We show that binaries of stellar-mass black holes formed inside a young protoglobular cluster, can grow rapidly inside the cluster’s core by accretion of the intracluster gas, before the gas may be
