Stellar X-Ray surveys and Galaxy structure

Abstract

Soft X-ray surveys are very effective to study low-mass stellar populations in our Galaxy. Indeed stellar X-ray counts well complement optical stellar counts since they allow us to study spatial distributions and densities of main sequence stars as function of age. This capability is due to the strong dependence of X-ray luminosity on stellar age… (More)
