POPCORN: A comparison of binary population synthesis codes

Joke Claeys, Silvia Toonen, Nicki Mennekens

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper


We compare the results of three binary population synthesis codes to understand the differences in their results. As a first result we find that when equalizing the assumptions the results are similar. The main differences arise from deviating physical input.
