    Title: The redshift evolution of the binary black hole merger rate: a weighty matter.

    Abstract: Current gravitational wave detectors are starting to reveal the redshift evolution of the binary black hole (BBH) merger rate, and third-generation detectors promise to probe BBH mergers across all redshifts of interest to stellar mass BHs. The redshift evolution of the BBH merger rate contains valuable information on the BH progenitors and their...
