Testing slim-disk models on the thermal spectra of LMC X-3
Astronomy and Astrophysics
Slim-disk models describe accretion flows at high luminosities, while reducing to the standard thin disk form in the low luminosity limit. We have developed a new spectral model, slimbb, within the framework of XSPEC, which describes fully relativistic slim-disk accretion and includes photon ray-tracing that starts from the disk photosphere, rather than the equatorial plane. We demonstrate the features of this model by applying it to RXTE spectra of the persistent black-hole X-ray binary LMCdoi:10.1051/0004-6361/201117385 fatcat:6qz3x5grenaczi4u6momvs7upa
