26 February 2003 Distribution of mass ratios in compact object binaries
Author Affiliations +
Using the Star Track population synthesis code we compute the distribution of masses of merging compact object (black hole or neutron star) binaries. The shape of the mass distribution is sensitive to some parameters governing the stellar binary evolution. We discuss the possibility of constraining stellar evolution models using mass measurements abtained from detection of compact object inspiral with upcoming gravitational-wave observatories.
