The supercritical accretion disk in SS 433 and ultraluminous X-ray sources

SS 433 is the only known persistent supercritical accretor, it may be very important for understanding ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs) located in external galaxies. We describe main properties of the SS 433 supercritical accretion disk and jets. Basing on observational data of SS 433 and published 2D simulations of supercritical accretion disks we… (More)
