J/ApJS/139/369). We investigate (1) one-dimensional surface brightness profiles via isophotal ellipse fitting; (2) two-dimensional, point-spread function convolved, bulge+disk+nucleus profile fitting; (3) asymmetry and concentration indices compared with all ∼3000 sources in our three WFPC2 fields; and (4) near-neighbor analyses comparing local environments of X-ray sources versus the field control sample. Significant nuclear point-source optical components appear in roughly half of the resolved HST/WFPC2 counterparts, showing a narrow range of FX/Fopt, nuc consistent with the several HST-unresolved X-ray sources (putative type 1 active galactic nuclei [AGNs]) in our fields.

Note (1): Sources detected only in CXO soft band (0.5-2keV) indicated with upper limits. Note (2): HR (H-S)/(H+S), where H=2-10keV counts, S=0.5-2keV counts Note (3): When Fn/FtV≃1, HST-unresolved sources omitted from two-dimensional fitting, plotted with Fnuc∼Ftot in fig.4 of the paper. Note (4): If 0 is not excluded at >3σ, only 3σ upper limit is shown.
Global notes: Note (G1): Stellarity measure, eta, defined such that eta -> 1 for an unresolved surface brightness profile and eta -> 0 for a resolved profile.
