A catalogue of high-mass X-ray binaries.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present a catalogue of high-mass X-ray binaries. The catalogue is an updated version of the catalogue of van Paradijs (1995, in: X-ray Binaries, Lewin, van Paradijs & van den Heuvel, Eds., Cambridge Univ. Press, p. 536, Cat. V/90). This new catalogue contains 130 sources, 61 new high-mass X-ray binaries in addition to the 69 sources listed in van Paradijs' catalogue. Most of the new sources are identified to be Be/X-ray binaries. Some sources, however, are only tentatively identified as high-mass X-ray binaries on the basis of a transient character and/or a hard X-ray spectrum. Further identification in other wavelength bands is needed to finally determine the features of these sources. The aim of this catalogue is to provide the reader with some basic information on the X-ray sources and their counterparts in other wavelength ranges (UV, optical, IR, radio). In cases where there is some doubt about the high-mass nature of the X-ray binary this is mentioned. Some doubtful cases have not been included in the catalogue although they had been suggested by some authors to be high-mass X-ray binaries, for example GRS 1915+105 and 1WGA J1958.2+3232.
