Thesis

A study of compact objects: stellar evolution models and X-ray binaries

Abstract:

Compact and double compact binary systems are excellent natural laboratories for the study of a variety of physical phenomena. In this Thesis I study black hole binary systems and neutron star low-mass X-ray binaries in order to investigate binary stellar evolution pathways and accretion mechanisms.

Estimating the binary black hole merger rate and comparing it with predictions from gravitational-wave observatories is an important method to constrain binary stellar evolution channel...
