ART-XC/SRG all-sky survey: simulations and expectations

Not scheduled




We present simulations of a four-year all-sky survey by ART-XC/SRG.
The sensitivity of the survey is predicted at the level of $\sim(1\div 5)\times 10^{-12}$ erg s$^{-1}$~m$^{-2}$, in the 4-12 keV energy range, depending on exposure time. We expect to detect around ten thousand sources in 4-40 keV, including heavily obscured AGNs. Thus we will be able to improve the existing estimates of the fraction of such objects in the total population.These simulations allow us to do a statistical calibration of the survey and study the most effective source detection methods for both ART-XC working regimes: the standard one and as an X-ray concentrator.
