X-rays From Magnetic Flares In Cygnus X-1 : A Unified Model With Seyfert Galaxies


Some recent work, e.g., by Zdziarski et al., has shown that the spectrum of Seyfert 1 Galaxies is very similar to that of several Galactic Black Hole Candidates (GBHCs) in their hard state. However, the smallness of the observed reflection component in Cygnus X-1, in addition to other constraints, seem to rule out the two-phase model (otherwise successful… (More)
