Deep observations of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) and region were carried out in the hard X-ray band by the INTEGRAL observatory in 2008-2009. The field of view of the instrument permitted simultaneous coverage of the entire SMC and the eastern end of the Magellanic Bridge. In total, INTEGRAL detected seven sources in the SMC and five in the Magellanic Bridge; the majority of the sources were previously unknown systems. Several of the new sources were detected undergoing bright X- ray… 
High-mass X-ray binaries in the Small Magellanic Cloud ⋆
The last comprehensive catalogue of high-mass X-ray binaries in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) was published about ten years ago. Since then new such systems were discovered, mainly by X-ray
The First Year of S-CUBED: The Swift Small Magellanic Cloud Survey
The Swift Small Magellanic Cloud Survey, S-CUBED, is a high cadence shallow X-ray survey of the SMC. The survey consists of 142 tiled pointings covering the optical extent of the SMC, which is
Unveiling the nature of INTEGRAL objects through optical spectroscopy - X. A new multi-year, multi-observatory campaign
Within the framework of our program (running since 2004) of identification of hard X–ray INTEGRAL sources through optical spectroscopy, we present the results concerning the nature of 33 high-energy
The orbital solution and spectral classification of the high-mass X-ray binary IGR J01054−7253 in the Small Magellanic Cloud
We present X-ray and optical data on the Be/X-ray binary (BeXRB) pulsar IGR J 01054−7253 = SXP11.5 in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) observations of this source
SXP 5.05 = IGR J00569-7226: using X-rays to explore the structure of a Be star's circumstellar disc
On MJD 56590-1 (2013 Oct 25–26), observations of the Magellanic Clouds by the INTErnational Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory (INTEGRAL) observatory discovered a previously unreported bright, flaring
Unveiling the nature of INTEGRAL objects through optical spectroscopy - VIII. Identification of 44 newly detected hard X-ray sources
(abridged) Hard X-ray surveys performed by the INTEGRAL satellite have discovered a conspicuous fraction (up to 30%) of unidentified objects among the detected sources. Here we continue our
On the thorium absorption lines in the visible spectra of supergiant stars in the magellanic clouds
We present the results of the analysis of thorium absorption lines in the spectra of metal-deficient stars: the thorium-rich Galactic halo star HD 221170 and some supergiants in the Magellanic
In-depth study of long-term variability in the X-ray emission of the Be/X-ray binary system AX J0049.4−7323
AX J0049.4−7323 is a Be/X-ray binary in the Small Magellanic Cloud hosting a ~750 s pulsar which has been observed over the last ~17 years by several X-ray telescopes. Despite numerous observations,
Be/X-ray binaries
The interest in X/γ-ray Astronomy has grown enormously in the last decades thanks to the ability to send X-ray space missions above the Earth’s atmosphere. There are more than half a million X-ray

INTEGRAL observations of the Small Magellanic Cloud
The first INTEGRAL observations of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) (carried out in 2003) are reported in which two sources are clearly detected. The first source, SMC X-1, shows a hard X-ray eclipse
The Magellanic Bridge: evidence for a population of X-ray binaries
INTEGRAL observations of the Small Magellanic Cloud region have resulted in the serendipitous detection of two transient hard X-ray sources in the Magellanic Bridge. In this paper, we present the
Optical properties of Small Magellanic Cloud X-ray binaries
This work represent the first major study of the optical and IR characteristics of the mass donor companions to the X-ray pulsars in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). In this work several new
An X-Ray Investigation of the NGC 346 Field in the Small Magellanic Cloud. II. The Field Population
We present results from a Chandra observation of the NGC 346 cluster, which is the ionizing source of N66, the most luminous H II region and the largest star formation region in the SMC. In the first
The chandra small magellanic cloud wing survey - the search for X-ray binaries
We have detected 523 sources in a survey of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) Wing with Chandra. By cross-correlating the X-ray data with optical and near-infrared catalogues we have found 300
N-body Simulations of the Small Magellanic Cloud and the Magellanic Stream
An extensive set of N-body simulations has been carried out on the gravitational interaction of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) with the Galaxy and the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). The SMC is
A Long Look at the Be/X-Ray Binaries of the Small Magellanic Cloud
We have monitored 41 Be/X-ray binary systems in the Small Magellanic Cloud over ~9 yr using PCA RXTE data from a weekly survey program. The resulting light curves were analyzed in search of orbital
Exploring accretion theory with X-ray binaries in the Small Magellanic Cloud
The understanding of the accretion process on to compact objects in binary systems is an important part of modern astrophysics. Theoretical work, primarily that of Ghosh & Lamb, has made clear
A New Look at the Kinematics of Neutral Hydrogen in the Small Magellanic Cloud
We have used the latest H I observations of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), obtained with the Australia Telescope Compact Array and the Parkes telescope, to reexamine the kinematics of this dwarf
