Abstract

Compact object mergers are one of the favoured models of gamma ray bursts (GRB). Using a binary population synthesis code we calculate properties of the population of compact object binaries; e.g. lifetimes and velocities. We then propagate them in galactic potentials and find their distribution in relation to the host.
