Extending the 'energetic scaling of relativistic jets from black hole systems' to include γ-ray-loud X-ray binaries.


Abstract (from CDS):

We show that the jet power Pj and geometrically corrected γ-ray luminosity Lγ for the X-ray binaries (XRBs) Cygnus X-1, Cygnus X-3, and V404 Cygni, and γ-ray upper limits for GRS 1915+105 and GX339-4, follow the universal scaling for the energetics of relativistic jets from black hole (BH) systems found by Nemmen et al. for blazars and GRBs. The observed peak γ-ray luminosity for XRBs is geometrically corrected,and the minimum jet power is estimated from the peak flux density of radio flares and the flare rise time. The Lγ-Pj correlation holds across ∼17 orders of magnitude. The correlation suggests a jet origin for the high-energy emission from XRBs, and indicates a common mechanism or efficiency for the high-energy emission 0.1-100 GeV from all relativistic BH systems.
