Exponential slopes of the DGMFs as a function of b (left), B (center), and ℳs (right). The solid black lines show the time step t = 0, and the dotted lines SFE =  { 0,1,...,10 } %. The blue, red, and green shaded regions indicate the slopes observed in starless and star-forming nearby clouds (Kainulainen et al. 2009) and in IRDCs (KT13, however, see the discussion on these data in Sect. 3.2). The median masses of each set of the clouds, M1/2, are shown in the panels.

This figure is made of several images, please see below:
