A Chandra X-ray study of NGC 1068. II. The luminous X-ray source population. Smith D.A., Wilson A.S. <Astrophys. J., 591, 138-153 (2003)> =2003ApJ...591..138S
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, Seyfert ; X-ray sources ; Binaries, X-ray Mission_Name: Chandra Keywords: accretion, accretion disks - galaxies: individual (NGC 1068) - galaxies: Seyfert - galaxies: starburst - X-rays: binaries Abstract: We present an analysis of the compact X-ray source population in the Seyfert 2 galaxy NGC 1068, imaged with a 50ks Chandra observation. We find a total of 84 compact sources on the S3 chip, of which 66 are located within the 25.0B-mag/arcsec2 isophote of the galactic disk of NGC 1068. Spectra have been obtained for the 21 sources with at least 50 counts and modeled with both multicolor disk blackbody and power-law models. File Summary:

Note (1): Flag on counts 'f': Upper limits are calculated for a confidence level of 90%, using either a) equation (9) in Kraft, Burrows & Nousek (1991ApJ...374..344K) for instances when the total number of counts in the detection region is ≤20, or b) equation (3) in Gehrels (1986ApJ...303..336G), when the total number of counts is >20. The mean number of background counts was then subtracted from these calculated upper limits. Note (2): The errors are [σT2B2*(AT/AB)2]1/2 (e.g., Bevington & Robinson, 1992, Data Reduction and Error Analysis for the Physical Sciences (2d ed.; New York: McGraw-Hill) p. 41), where σB are the respective 1σ errors on the total and background counts, derived from equation (7) in Gehrels (1986ApJ...303..336G), and AT and AB are the respective areas of the source and background regions. Note (3): Corrected for Galactic absorption only, assuming that the source is in NGC 1068 (distance = 14.4Mpc) and the emission is isotropic.
