LVK has already detected nearly hundred of mergers not counting thecurrent O4 run. This allows us to investigate the properties of the detectedpopulation.  I will review what we know of the detections,  present thepossible models  of formation of these objects, and compare the modelswith observations.

This is a hybrid event:
