 Ultra-luminous X-ray sources in Ring Galaxies

 

 ABSTRACT

Collisional Ring Galaxies (RiGs), with their expanding ring of gas and stars and their high star formation rate are unique objects where to study the most massive products of star formation and shed some light on the nature of ultra-luminous X-ray sources (ULXs) found on their rings.

After a review of our current knowledge of ULXs and their diversity, I will describe in detail the RiGs and their properties. In particular I will focus on the X-ray luminosity function of ULXs in RiGs and compare it with other XLF from different samples.
