Jets from galactic binaries

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

I present a brief review of the properties of jets from X-ray binaries, highlighting the disk-jet connection, in which there are strong correlations between X-ray and radio power for black holes and for neutron star in low/hard spectral states, and reduced emission in soft states. I discuss how some of the new "deviant" black hole systems which follow the relation normally found for neutron stars might fit into such a picture. I close by highlighting a few open questions which might be best addressed with soft gamma-ray observations.
