  • LIGO’s third observing run (O3) has reported several neutron star-black hole (NSBH) merger candidates. From a theoretical point of view, NSBH mergers have received less attention in the community than either binary black holes (BBHs), or binary neutron stars (BNSs). Here we examine single-single (sin-sin) gravitational wave (GW) captures in different types of star clusters— galactic nuclei (GN), globular clusters (GC), and young stellar clusters (YSC)— and compare the merger rates from this… CONTINUE READING
