Abstract

The main astrophysical manifestations of black holes are discussed. This includes an account of X-ray binaries and microquasars, active galactic nuclei, gamma-ray bursts, and ultra-luminous X-ray sources. Evidence for the existence of black holes in these sources is reviewed. Recent observational findings on stellar-mass, intermediate-mass, and supermassive black holes are presented and open observational challenges are described.
