"Although X-ray binaries constitute to the brightest X-ray point sources in our Galaxy, a peculiar subgroup is orders of magnitude fainter in the X-rays than the general population. These sub-luminous X-ray binaries
may harbor unusual donors, tracing rare binary evolution paths, and represent a relatively poor explored regime of accretion. This proposal aims at elucidating the nature of this tantalizing population of X-ray binaries to advance our understanding of binary evolution and accretion flows occurring at low rates."
