WepresentresultsfromspectralmodelingofthreeblackholeX-raybinaries:LMCX-3,GROJ1655� 40,andXTE J1550� 564. Using a sample of disk-dominated observations, we fit the data with a range of spectral models that in- cludes a simple multitemperature blackbody (DISKBB), a relativistic accretion disk model based on color-corrected blackbodies (KERRBB), and a relativistic model based on non-LTE atmosphere models within anprescription (BHSPEC). BHSPEC provides the best fit for a BeppoSAXobservation of LMC… Expand
