• Searching for distinctive signatures, which characterize different formation channels of binary black holes (BBHs), is a crucial step towards the interpretation of current and future gravitational wave detections. Here, we investigate the demography of merging BBHs in young star clusters (SCs), which are the nursery of massive stars. We performed $4\times{} 10^3$ N-body simulations of SCs with metallicity $Z=0.002$, initial binary fraction $0.4$ and fractal initial conditions, to mimic the… CONTINUE READING
