The connection between inflow and outflow around accreting stellar-mass black holes
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis presents multiwavelength monitoring of the Galactic black hole candidate X-ray binary MAXI J1836-194 during its 2011 outburst. The observations have been used to probe the relationship between the inflow and outflow around this accreting stellar-mass black hole with unprecedented detail, delivering new information on the evolution of the accretion and ejection processes and how they are coupled, providing insight into how accretion-powered jets are launched on all physical scales.

(2015)The transitional millisecond pulsar (MSP) binary system PSR J1023+0038 re-entered an accreting state in 2013 June in which it bears many similarities to low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) in quiescence or near-quiescence. ...

Incoherent synchrotron emission from these outflows can be observed from a ...
