Abstract

We consider nearby young black holes formed after supernova explosions in close binaries whose secondary components are currently observed as the so-called runaway stars. Using data on runaway stars and making reasonable assumptions about the mechanisms of supernova explosion and binary breakup, we estimate the present positions of nearbyyoung black holes. For two objects, we obtained relatively small error regions (∼50–100 deg2). The possibility of detecting these nearby young black holes is discussed.

Key words
