Black Holes across the Mass Spectrum-from Stellar Mass BH to ULXs and AGN
Author and Affiliation:
Mushotzky, Richard(NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, United States)
Abstract: I will discuss the observational characteristics of black holes and how they compare across the 10^8 range in mass and as a function of luminosity and apparent Eddington ratio. I will concentrate on the broad band spectrum, the timing signatures and the energy budget of these objects. In particular I will stress the similarities and differences in the x-ray spectra and power density spectra of AGN, ultraluminous x-ray sources and galactic black holes as a function of 'state'. I will also discuss the nature of the Fe K line and other diagnostics of the regions near the event horizon.
