  • Formation of black hole x-ray binaries in globular clusters 

    Ivanova, Natalia; Chaichenets, Semyon; Fregeau, John; Heinke, Craig O.; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Woods, Tyrone E. (Institute of Physics, 2010-07-10)
    Inspired by the recent identification in extragalactic globular clusters of the first candidate black hole–white dwarf (BH–WD) X-ray binaries, where the compact accretors may be stellar-mass black holes (BHs), we explore ...
  • Implications of the Delayed 2013 Outburst of ESO 243-49 HLX-1 

    Godet, O.; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Antonini, F.; Barret, D.; Webb, N. A.; Vingless, Jacob; Thomas, Morgan (IOP, 2014-10-01)
    After showing four quasi-periodic outbursts spaced by similar to 1 yr from 2009 to 2012, the hyper luminous X-ray source ESO 243-49 HLX-1, currently the best intermediate mass black hole (IMBH) candidate, showed an outburst ...
  • Micro-tidal disruption events by stellar compact objects and the production of ultra-long GRBs 

    Perets, Hagai B.; Li, Zhuo; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Milcarek, Stephen R. Jr (Institute of Physics, 2016-05-27)
    We explore full/partial tidal disruption events (TDEs) of stars/planets by stellar compact objects (black holes (BHs) or neutron stars (NSs)), which we term micro-TDEs. Disruption of a star/planet with mass M sstarf may ...
  • On the origin of the metallicity dependence in dynamically formed extragalactic low-mass X-ray binaries 

    Ivanova, Natalia; Fragos, Tassos; Kim, Dong-Woo; Fabbiano, Guiseppina; Avendano Nandez, Jose Luis; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Sivakoff, Gregory R.; Voss, Rasmus; Jordán, Andrés (Institute of Physics, 2012-12-01)
    Globular clusters (GCs) effectively produce dynamically formed low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs). Observers detect ~100 times more LMXBs per stellar mass in GCs compared to stars in the fields of galaxies. Observationally, ...
