[20.01] Hard X-ray Imaging Survey Science Objectives

T. A. Prince (Caltech)

Many high energy sources, such as black hole binaries and active galactic nuclei, are inherently variable and transient. Study of these sources requires X-ray and hard X-ray imaging with very large field of view. We briefly discuss the impetus for future all-sky imaging survey observations, including recent observations with the current generation of high-energy all-sky monitors.
