ClassX detection of candidate low-luminosity hard X-ray binaries. Suchkov A.A., Hanisch R.J. <Astrophys. J., 612, 437-446 (2004)> =2004ApJ...612..437S
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; Binaries, X-ray ; X-ray sources Keywords: globular clusters: general - methods: statistical - surveys - X-rays: binaries - X-rays: general - X-rays: stars Abstract: We report the results of a search for hard X-ray binaries (HXRBs) among previously unidentified sources from ROSAT PSPC pointed observations, using the automated X-ray source classifier ClassX.

Global Notes: Note (G1): X-ray brightness is defined by mxtot=-2.5log(Ctot) where Ctot is the total count rate in the energy band 0.1-2.0keV Note (G2): The three hardness parameters, R0, R1, and R2, characterize a ROSAT X-ray spectrum in the soft, medium, and hard parts of the ROSAT energy band, respectively, and are defined by: R0=C(0.4-0.9)/C(0.1-0.4), R1=C(0.9-2.0)/C(0.4-0.9), R2=C(1.3-2.4)/C(0.9-1.3), where C is the count rate in the energy band shown in parentheses (in keV).
