The “radiation inner edge” of an accretion disk is defined as the inner boundary of the region from which most of the luminosity emerges. Similarly, the “reflection edge” is the smallest radius capable of producing a significant X-ray reflection of the fluorescent iron line. For black hole accretion disks with very sub-Eddington luminosities these and all other “inner edges” coexist at the innermost stable circular orbit (ISCO). Thus, in this case, one may rightly consider ISCO as the unique… Expand
