On September 14 2015, the LIGO interferometers captured a gravitational wave (GW) signal from two merging black holes (BHs), opening the era of GW astrophysics. Five BH mergers have been reported so far, three of them involving massive BHs ($\gtrsim{}30$ M$_\odot$). According to stellar evolution models, such massive BHs can originate from massive, relatively metal-poor stars. The formation channels of merging BH binaries are still an open question: a plethora of uncertainties affect the… Expand
