Radio and X-ray properties of relativistic beaming models for ultraluminous X-ray sources

Freeland, M; Kuncic, Zdenka; Soria, Roberto; Bicknell, Geoffrey


We calculate the broad-band radio-X-ray spectra predicted by microblazar and microquasar models for ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs), exploring the possibility that their dominant power-law component is produced by a relativistic jet, even at near-Eddington mass accretion rates. We do this by first constructing a generalized disc-jet theoretical framework in which some fraction of the total accretion power, Pa, is efficiently removed from the accretion disc by a magnetic torque responsible...[Show more]
