Histogram of the difference between the merger SFR and the cumulative isolated SFR (SFR − SFRiso) computed between 100 Myr before and 100 Myr after the galaxies coalescence. Each panel explores disk orientations for fixed masses respectively given by θ1_θ2_κ and Gi_Gj (written on the top left of each panel, see Tables 2 and 3). From these histograms, we can interpret how much time a merger spends with a higher or lower SFR during this crucial period. The quantity β in the legend is the barycenter of the histogram, which measures the shift in star formation induced by the merger compared to secular evolution.
