  • Owing to their high central densities, star clusters appear to be the ideal environment for the assembly of neutron star-neutron star (NS-NS) and black hole-neutron star (BH-NS) binaries. These binaries are among the most interesting astrophysical objects, being potential sources of several high-energy phenomena, such as gravitational waves (GWs) and gamma-ray bursts. In this paper, we use for the first time high-precision N-body simulations of young massive and open clusters to study the… CONTINUE READING
