  "abstract": "<p>This dataset contains the output data of rapid binary population synthesis produced using COMPAS v02.27.05. The details of the initial conditions and setup are described in the &quot;COMPAS_settings_table.pdf&quot; file. We simulate 5 million binaries, at representative metallicities, and store them in HDF5 files, the default format for COMPAS simulations. Each HDF5 file contains the following groups:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&lsquo;/BSE_Common_Envelopes&rsquo;</li>\n\t<li>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&lsquo;/BSE_Double_Compact_Objects&rsquo;</li>\n\t<li>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&lsquo;/BSE_Supernovae&rsquo;</li>\n\t<li>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&lsquo;/BSE_System_Parameters&rsquo;</li>\n\t<li>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&lsquo;/Run_Details&rsquo;</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>For details about the data, such as variable names and attributes, visit the <a href=\"\"></a>.<br>\nThe metallicities chosen for the simulations are:</p>\n\n<ol>\n\t<li>Z=0.0001: the lowest metallicity accounted for in our stellar evolution tracks;</li>\n\t<li>Z=0.0002: a proxy metallicity for I Zwicky 18;</li>\n\t<li>Z=0.001;</li>\n\t<li>Z=0.0021: a proxy metallicity for the Small Magellanic Cloud;</li>\n\t<li>Z=0.0047: a proxy metallicity for the Large Magellanic Cloud;</li>\n\t<li>Z=0.01;</li>\n\t<li>Z=0.0142: a metallicity representative of&nbsp;the Sun;</li>\n\t<li>Z=0.02: a super-solar metallicity, aka &quot;old Solar&quot;;</li>\n\t<li>Z=0.03: the highest metallicity accounted for in&nbsp;our stellar evolution tracks;</li>\n\t<li>U[log<sub>10</sub>(0.0001), log<sub>10</sub>(0.03)]: log-uniformly distributed metallicities from the COMPAS metallicities.</li>\n</ol>\n\n<p>This results in 50 million binaries in total.</p>\n\n<p>In addition&nbsp;to the Table in the &quot;COMPAS_settings_table.pdf&quot; file, we include a &quot;Run Details&quot; text file, which contains the setup as specified via COMPAS, for a particular batch of the Z=0.02 simulation. This file contains a representative description of the global properties of all the 10 simulations, but some details, e.g. Clock-Time, vary from batch to batch.</p>\n\n<p>For questions, comments, or suggestions, contact or visit <a href=\"\"></a>.<br>\nVisit <a href=\"\">Team COMPAS Github page</a> to get access to the source code.<br>\nFinally, if you use any of these data, we kindly request that, in recognition of this team effort, the paper is cited as:</p>\n\n<p>Team COMPAS: J.
