[20.02] Comparison of the galactic distributions of LMXBs with black holes and with neutron stars

J. van Paradijs (U. Amsterdam/U. Alabama, Huntsville)

For several dozen low-mass X-ray binaries,containing either a neutron star or a black hole, distances can be estimated, from which information about their galactic distributions can be inferred. These two distributions appear to be different. I will discuss the possible origin of this difference.
