Observations of Galactic black hole sources are traditionally done in the classical X-ray range (2 -- 10 keV) due to sensitivity constraints. Most of the accretion power, however, is radiated above 10 keV and the study of these sources in hard X-rays has the potential to unravel the radiation mechanisms operating at the inner region of the accretion disk, which is believed to be the seat of a myriad of fascinating features like jet emission, high frequency QPO emission etc. I will briefly…

THE HARD X-RAY SPECTRUM OF NGC 1365: SCATTERED LIGHT, NOT BLACK HOLE SPIN
Active galactic nuclei (AGNs) show excess X-ray emission above 10 keV compared with extrapolation of spectra from lower energies. Risaliti et al. have recently attempted to model the hard X-ray
The X-Ray Spectral Evolution of Galactic Black Hole X-Ray Binaries toward Quiescence
Most transient black hole X-ray binaries (BHXBs) spend the bulk of their time in a quiescent state, where they accrete matter from their companion star at highly sub-Eddington luminosities (we define
Characterization of GX 339-4 outburst of 2010-11: analysis by XSPEC using two component advective flow model
We study spectral properties of GX 339-4 during its 2010-11 outburst with Two Component Advective Flow (TCAF) model after its inclusion in XSPEC as a table model. We compare results fitted by TCAF
