ADC_Keywords: Surveys ; X-ray sources Keywords: galaxies: active - large-scale structure of Universe - X-rays: diffuse background - X-rays: galaxies Abstract: The COSMOS survey is a multiwavelength survey aimed to study the evolution of galaxies, AGN and large scale structures. Within this survey XMM-COSMOS a powerful tool to detect AGN and galaxy clusters. The XMM-COSMOS is a deep X-ray survey over the full 2deg2 of the COSMOS area. It consists of 55 XMM-Newton pointings for a total exposure of ∼1.5Ms with an average vignetting-corrected depth of 40ks across the field of view and a sky coverage of 2.13deg2. The analysis was performed using the XMM-SAS data analysis package in the 0.5-2keV, 2-10keV and 5-10keV energy bands. Source detection has been performed using a maximum likelihood technique especially designed for raster scan surveys. The completeness of the catalogue as well as logN-logS and source density maps have been calibrated using Monte Carlo simulations. Description: This is the catalogue of point-like X-ray sources detected with the EPIC CCD cameras. The catalogs contains a total of 1887 unique sources detected in at least one band with likelihood parameter detml>10. The survey, which shows unprecedented homogeneity, has a flux limit of ∼1.7x10-15erg/cm2/s, ∼9.3x10-15erg/cm2/s and 1.3x10-14erg/cm2/s over 90% of the area (1.92deg2) in the 0.5-2keV, 2-10keV and 5-10keV energy band, respectively.
