  • Gravitational wave detections are starting to allow us to probe the physical processes in the evolution of very massive stars through the imprints they leave on their final remnants. Stellar evolution theory predicts the existence of a gap in the black hole mass distribution at high mass due to the effects of pairinstability. Previously, we showed that the location of the gap is robust against model uncertainties, but it does depend sensitively on the uncertain C (α, γ) 16 O rate. This rate is… CONTINUE READING
