Abstract

Bulk of various astronomical observations of black holes suggest that virtually all observed black holes can be of primordial origin. A modified mechanism of the primordial black hole formation is described. A universal log-normal mass spectrum with a mean mass of around (Formula presented.) predicted by this mechanism is strongly confirmed by the LIGO/Virgo observations of gravitational waves from coalescing binary black holes.
