The distribution of the secondary masses Φ(M2) (normalised such that ) extracted from the inversion of the mass functions f(M1,M2), assuming a random orientation of the orbital planes on the sky and a fixed primary mass M1 = 0.8 M⊙ (top) or M1 = 0.9 M⊙ (bottom). For comparison, we also show, with a dashed red line, a Gaussian distribution of masses centred around M2 = 0.56 M⊙ (top) or M1 = 0.6 M⊙ (bottom), with a standard deviation of 0.075 M⊙ in each case.
