Fig. 2


Assessment of the missed companion fraction from a Monte Carlo simulation. Simulated companions (circles of any color) are compared with the detection limits of the RV survey (Nguyen et al. 2012, left curve) and AO imaging survey (Lafrenière et al. 2008, right curve) used for target selection. Points above these curves count as detections in our simulation (blue/left curve: RV detection, red/right curve: imaging detection). Companions within our survey limits (heavy dashed lines) that would remain undetected by either of these studies, i.e., in between or below their curves, are shown in magenta. Companions outside the sensitivity limits of our survey or that of Nguyen et al. (2012) and Lafrenière et al. (2008, right curve) are shown in green. For illustration purposes, only 10% of all simulated points are shown.
