List of Tables

Table 1:
Types of compact stellar remnants (the ranges of progenitor mass are shown for solar composition stars).
Table 2:
Observed parameters of double neutron star binaries.
Table 3:
Derived parameters of double neutron star binaries
Table 4:
Examples of the estimates for Galactic merger rates of relativistic binaries calculated under different assumptions on the parameters entering population synthesis.
Table 5:
Occurrence rates of SNe Ia in the candidate progenitor systems (in yr–1), after [468]. SG stands for sub-giant, RG for red giant, and XRS for X-ray source.
Table 6:
Current birth rates and merger rates per year for Galactic disk binaries containing two compact objects and their total number in the Galactic disk [286].
