Colloquium by Ronald Taam (ASISS & Northwestern University )

The Astrophysics of Stellar Mass Compact Objects

Abstract:

Current developments in the astrophysics of stellar mass compact objects will be highlighted. Recent space based and ground based observations of X-ray point sources in our Galaxy and in external galaxies have led to a resurgence of interest in these objects. A brief overview of their observational properties will be introduced and our current physical understanding described. Many of these objects are transient, exhibiting time variations in both flux and spectra. By studying their behavior in both quiescence and in outburst, they can be used as cosmic laboratories to reveal the physics underlying their nature and state of evolution.
