Abstract:

We compute the probability that intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs) capture companions owing to dynamic interactions and appear as accreting sources and we explore the possibility that the accreting IMBHs would appear as ultraluminous X-ray sources.

Keywords: Accreting sources; Intermediate-mass black holes; Ultraluminous X-ray sources
