Probes of cosmic star formation history
I summarize X-ray diagnostic studies of cosmic star formation history in terms of evolutionary schemes for X-ray binary evolution in normal galaxies with evolving star formation. Deep X-ray imaging studies byChandra andXMM-Newton are now beginning to constrain both the X-ray luminosity evolution of galaxies and the logN- logS diagnostics of the X-ray background. I discuss these in the above context, summarizing current understanding and future prospects.

Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
