Host galaxies of merging compact objects: mass, star formation rate, metallicity and colours

16 May 2019 Artale M. Celeste Mapelli Michela Giacobbo Nicola Sabha Nadeen B. Spera Mario Santoliquido Filippo Bressan Alessandro

Characterizing the properties of the host galaxies of merging compact objects provides essential clues to interpret current and future gravitational-wave detections. Here, we investigate the stellar mass, star formation rate (SFR), metallicity and colours of the host galaxies of merging compact objects in the local Universe, by combining the results of MOBSE population-synthesis models together with galaxy catalogs from the EAGLE simulation...
