[54.13] A Study of Ultra-Luminous X-ray Sources from the Chandra Archive of Galaxies

D. A. Swartz, K. K. Ghosh, A. F. Tennant ()

The more than 80 nearby galaxies imaged with the Chandra Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer have been analyzed in a search for Ultra-Luminous X-ray (ULX) sources. The sample of galaxies span the range of Hubble morphological types and include galaxies of various mass, gas content, and dynamical state. X-ray characteristics of the resulting ensemble of ULX candidates are reported and correlations with properties of the host galaxies are presented.

Support for this research was provided in part by NASA/Chndra grant AR2-3008X to D.A.S.
