The high central densities, old age, and large numbers of stars in globular clusters make them perfect laboratories for stellar exotica including blue straggler stars, cataclysmic variables, and low-mass X-ray binaries. Using a highly realistic Hénon-type Monte Carlo code CMC we study the effects of initial binary properties on the production of these exotic stellar objects. In addition, we investigate whether the progenitors of today’s globular clusters could have been similar in properties, except for metallicity, to the massive young star clusters observed today especially in starburst galaxies.
