Stellar Mass Black Holes in the Galaxy.


Author list: V. A. Cúneo, M. N. Gómez


This contribution presents a stellar mass black holes candidates' catalogue, mainly in our Galaxy, that represents the largest database available in the literature nowadays. We developed a global study of the properties of these objects, in comparison with different types of evolved massive stars, and expose the main results we found. The confirmed candidates, all of them belonging to binary systems, are discussed in a separated and detailed manner. Through the analysis of these results we look for a better understand of final stages in the live of massive stars and their relation to black holes.
