We compute the synthetic 2-100 keV spectrum of an actively star forming galaxy. To this aim we use a luminosity function of point sources appropriate for starbursts (based on Chandra data), as well as the types of stellar sources and their corresponding spectra. Our estimates indicate that a Compton spectral component resulting from scattering of SN… CONTINUE READING
