The current interpretation of LIGO–Virgo–KAGRA data suggests that the primary mass function of merging binary black holes (BBHs) at redshift z . 1 contains multiples structures and is likely truncated beyond M1 > 100M , while spins are relatively low. Theoretical models of BBH formation in different environments can provide a key to interpret the population of observed mergers, but they require the simultaneous treatment of stellar evolution and dynamics, galaxy evolution, and general… Expand
