On the dynamic formation of accreting intermediate-mass black holes
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.
