X-ray Binary Populations

We conduct surveys of the population of X-ray binaries in different galaxies of the local group, with the aim of correlating them with star formation and other galaxy characteristics. One important  aim is obtaining detailed statistics of white dwarf binaries that are undergoing hydrogen burning in an accreted shell, but it is not the only focus of this research that yields important results for different types of astronomical objects.
