[49.06] Multiwavelength Observations of Ultraluminous X-Ray Sources

P. Kaaret (Harvard-Smithsonian CfA)

Multiwavelength observations may help us understand the physical nature of the ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs). Enabled by the arcsecond X-ray source positions now available from Chandra, there has been significant recent progress in the identification of optical and radio counterparts to ULXs. I review recent optical and radio observations of ultraluminous X-ray sources.
