Intermediate mass black holes in dwarf galaxies: the case of Holmberg II

Abstract

In order to constrain the density of intermediate mass black holes (IMBHs) in galaxies, we run SPH simulations of a gas rich disc dwarf galaxy, where different halo and disc populations of IMBHs are embedded. IMBHs, when passing through dense gas regions, can accrete gas and switch on as X-ray sources. We derive the luminosity distribution of simulated… (More)
