Abstract: We model the mass distribution of newborn black holes (BHs) using a new population synthesis code for massive stars in the Milky Way. The calculated distributions agree well with those obtained for the galactic BHs in binary systems. The explosions of Wolf–Rayet (WR) precursors may be responsible for the origin of BHs.
