By Riccardo Giacconi (auth.), Lex Kaper, Edward P. J. van den Heuvel, Patrick A. Woudt (eds.)

The observational facts for the lifestyles of black holes has grown considerably over contemporary many years. Stellar-mass black holes are detected as X-ray assets in binary platforms, whereas supermassive black holes, with lots greater than one million occasions the mass of the sunlight, lurk within the nuclei of galaxies. those lawsuits supply an invaluable and up to date evaluate of the observations of black holes in binaries, within the heart of the Milky method, and within the nuclei of galaxies, awarded by way of top professional astronomers. specified consciousness is given to the formation (including the new facts from gamma-ray bursts), actual homes, and demographics of black holes.
