  • Ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs) with X-ray luminosities larger than the Eddington luminosity of stellar-mass objects may be powered by intermediate-mass black holes (IBHs) of masses M • ∼ 10 3 M� .I fIBHs form in young dense stellar clusters, they can be fed by Roche lobe overflow from a tidally captured massive (M � > 10 M� ) stellar companion. After the donor leaves the main sequence it forms a compact remnant, which spirals in as a result of gravitational wave (GW) emission. We show that… CONTINUE READING
