|Outline of Research at the Start
Gravitational waves (GW) detection is a new channel of observing black hole (BH) and neutron star (NS), which are difficult to detect by using traditional telescopes. Thus, GW provides a unique way to study BHs/NSs. In this research, a series of large N-body simulations of star clusters, where GW progenitors can efficiently form, will be carried out to study correlations between star formation, stellar dynamics and properties of GW progenitors. Using the result, we make predictions of the characteristics of GW events, such as the mass of the progenitors, event rate and more detailed features.
