Resum

Compact object binaries i.e. binaries containing black holes and neutron stars are the most promising sources of gravitational waves. I will review the formation scenarios, and the properties of such binaries. I will discuss the selection effects for observations in gravitational waves and show the diffences with the radio observations.
