Researchers show that masses of binary black hole mergers are overestimated, since a large gravitational redshift is not taken into account. Such a phenomenon occurs due to time dilation in a close neighborhood of any black hole. This fact allows us to explain a high mass gap between observed binary neutron stars and calculated binary black hole mergers. They also present other reasons why masses of black hole mergers are determined incorrectly.
