Double Compact Objects: Cosmological

All of the presented models and their properties are described in Dominik et al. 2013

Each group contains a tar.gz archive consisting of three files: for NS-NS, BH-NS and BH-BH systems. The naming format is as follows:
model.system_type.frame_type.metallicity_scenario.dat.
For example, restframe results for NS-NS systems in the Standard Model for the high-end metallicity scenario are named: stan.nsns.rest.high.dat.

The output format for the restframe results is:
col. 1) time of merger in Myrs (0 Myrs is Big Bang).
col. 2) redshift "z" corresponding to the time in col. 1.
col. 3-13) merger rate density in Gpc-3yr-1 (per comoving volume, per comoving time), where each column represents the input to the rate from systems originating at different metallicities (Z, Zsun=0.02): col. 3 - Z=0.0001, col. 4 - Z=0.0002, col. 5 - Z=0.0005, col. 6 - Z=0.001, col. 7 - Z=0.0015, col. 8 - Z=0.002, col. 9 - Z=0.005, col. 10 - Z=0.01, col. 11 - Z=0.015, col. 12 - Z=0.02, col. 13 - Z=0.03.

The output format for the observer frame results is:
col. 1) redshift "z" of merger.
col. 2) local time in Myrs corresponding to the time un col. 1.
col. 3-13) the cumulative rate in yr-1 up to a given redshift (per local time), where each column represents the input to the rate from systems originating at different metallicities (as in restframe results).
