  • 4.1.1 Scope of this review We focus on 18 black holes with measured masses that are located in X–ray binary systems. These black holes are the most visible representatives of an estimated ∼300 million stellar–mass black holes that are believed to exist in the Galaxy (van den Heuvel 1992; Brown & Bethe 1994; Timmes et al. 1996; Agol et al. 2002). Thus the mass of this particular form of dark matter, assuming ∼10M⊙ per black hole, is ∼4% of the total baryonic mass (i.e., stars plus gas) of the… CONTINUE READING
