Minimum Sgr A∗ luminosity required for the source’s flux to be higher than the total HMXBs (left panel) and LMXBs (right panel) contribution at different positions on the Galactic plane. If we know the star formation rate and the mass of a galaxy, we can estimate the X-ray luminosity contributed by the X-ray binaries and similarly find when the AGNs contribute more than the X-ray binaries to the heating of the gas in other galaxies with AGNs.
