In recent years, fundamental relationships for the black hole X-ray binaries have been established between their X-ray luminosity $L_X$ and the photon index $\Gamma$ of their X-ray spectrum. For the moderate-luminosity regime, an anti-correlation between $\Gamma$ and $L_X$ has been observed. In this article, aimed to verify if the moderate luminous X-ray binary system LSI +61303 is a black hole, we analyse $Swift$ observations of LSI +61303. We compare the derived $L_X$ vs $\Gamma$ distribution…

Decade‐long X‐ray observations of HESS J0632+057
We present results of a decade-long X-ray observations of gamma-ray loud binary HESS J0632+057 with Swift/XRT, XMM-Newton, Chandra and Suzaku. Basing on all available data we refine the orbital
Sizing up the population of gamma-ray binaries
Gamma-ray binaries are thought to be composed of a young pulsar in orbit around a massive O or Be star, with their gamma-ray emission powered by pulsar spindown. The number of such systems in our
Evidence for periodic accretion–ejection in LS I +61°303
The stellar binary system LS I +61303, composed of a compact object in an eccentric orbit around a B0 Ve star, emits from radio up to gamma-ray energies. The orbital modulation of radio spectral
Radio/X-ray correlations and variability in the X-ray binary LS I +61°303
The high-mass X-ray binary LS I +61°303 exhibits variability in its radio and X-ray emissions, ranging from minute to hour time-scales. At such short time-scales, not much is known about the possible
Radio QPO in the γ-ray-loud X-ray binary LS I +61°303
LS I +61 degrees 303 is a gamma-ray emitting X-ray binary with periodic radio outbursts with time-scales of one month. Previous observations have revealed microflares superimposed on these large
Review on the multiwavelength emission of the gamma-ray binary LS I +61 303.
Gamma-ray binaries are systems composed of a massive star and a compact object that produce emission from radio to very high energy gamma-rays. LS I +61 303 is one of the only six gamma-ray binaries
Hour time-scale QPOs in the X-ray and radio emission of LS I +61°303
LS I +61$^{\circ}$303 is an X-ray binary with a radio outburst every ~27 days. Previous studies of the stellar system revealed radio microflares superimposed on the large radio outburst. We present
Orbital solution leading to an acceptable interpretation for the enigmatic gamma-ray binary HESS J0632+057
High-dispersion spectroscopic monitoring of HESS J0632+057 has been carried out over four orbital cycles in order to search for orbital modulation, covering the entire orbital phase. We have measured
Simultaneous long-term monitoring of LS I +61°303 by OVRO and Fermi-LAT
Previous long-term monitorings of the gamma-ray-loud X-ray binary LS I +61{\deg}303 have revealed the presence of a long-term modulation of ~4.5 years. After nine years of simultaneous monitoring of
Overview of non-transient γ-ray binaries and prospects for the Cherenkov Telescope Array
Aims. Despite recent progress in the field, there are still many open questions regarding γ-ray binaries. In this paper we provide an overview of non-transient γ-ray binaries and discuss how
