We have performed a detailed population synthesis on a large number (2 x 10 7 ) of binary systems in order to investigate the properties of massive double degenerate binaries. We have included new important results in ourinput physics in order to obtain more reliable estimates of the merging time-scales and relative formation rates. These improvements include refined treatment of the binding energy in a common envelope, helium star evolution and reduced kicks imparted to new-born black holes… Expand
