J/ApJS/194/4      Classification of CCCP X-ray sources           (Broos+, 2011)

A Naive Bayes source classifier for X-ray sources. Broos P.S., Getman K.V., Povich M.S., Townsley L.K., Feigelson E.D., Garmire G.P. <Astrophys. J. Suppl. Ser., 194, 4 (2011)> =2011ApJS..194....4B

Thousands of faint X-ray sources are found, many concentrated into rich young stellar clusters. However, significant contamination from unrelated Galactic and extragalactic sources is present in the X-ray catalog. We describe the use of a Naive Bayes classifier to assign membership probabilities to individual sources, based on source location, X-ray properties, and visual/infrared properties. For the particular membership decision rule adopted, 75% of CCCP sources are classified as members, 11% are classified as contaminants, and 14% remain unclassified. The resulting sample of stars likely to be Carina members is used in several other studies, which appear in this special issue devoted to the CCCP. Description: Broos et al. (2011, Cat. J/ApJS/194/2) and citations therein describe the X-ray, visual, NIR, and MIR measurements available for CCCP sources. File Summary:

Note (1): The first 14368 sources of the CCCP catalog (Broos et al., 2011, Cat. J/ApJS/194/2), sorted by RA; the 14369th source in the CCCP catalog was identified too late in the data analysis process to be included. Names are <CXOGNC> in Simbad. Note (2): Classification as follows: 1 = class H1 (foreground Galactic field star): Prob(H1|F)>2*max{Prob(H2|F),Prob(H3|F),Prob(H4|F)}; 716 sources 2 = class H2 (Carina young star): Prob(H2|F)>2*max{Prob(H1|F),Prob(H3|F),Prob(H4|F)}; 10714 sources 3 = class H3 (background Galactic field star): Prob(H3|F)>2*max{Prob(H1|F),Prob(H2|F),Prob(H4|F)}; 16 sources 4 = Class H4 (extragalactic): Prob(H4|F)>2*max{Prob(H1|F),Prob(H2|F),Prob(H3|F)}; 877 sources 0 = Unclassified; 2045 sources See section 4.4 for further details.
