Abstract

There are now well established classes of X-ray emitting galaxies, which exhibit characteristic ranges of luminosity, for example Green et al. (1992). The ROSAT all sky survey, has detected a relatively small number of galaxies whose overall properties do not appear consistent with any of these classes. We discuss whether these X-ray luminous galaxies (XLGs) are the extreme end of the luminosity range of starburst galaxies, or whether they represent a new X-ray class of AGN.
