Left: period distribution with respect to the longest period needed to obtain a given velocity offset for a circular orbit (Pmax; Eq. (9)) for a flat distribution of mass ratios (blue) or only equal-mass binaries (green). Middle: distribution of the radial velocity semi-amplitude (K) relative to the velocity offset (voff) for a flat distribution of eccentricities and circular orbits. Right: distribution of the velocity gradient (dv/dt) relative to the velocity offset (voff) divided by the orbital period (P) for a flat distribution of mass ratios (blue) or only equal-mass binaries (green). These plots are independent of the period distribution of the binaries, and only weakly depend on the mass ratio and eccentricity distributions.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
