Mass detection limits for AU Mic (for detection probabilities of 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%) when using RV measurements solely with RMS a) and LPA b) approaches, one DI data from one epoch c) and all DI data d), and finally both DI and RV data using the RMS e) and LPA f) approaches. We use an eccentricity range of [0, 0.6], an inclination range of [83°, 97°], and Ngen = 10 000. We highlight that the peaks around 2.7 and 4.3 au are due to the imperfect temporal sampling of the RV data. The low mass detection limits of 1 MJup obtained at large separations are in fact upper limits, corresponding to the lowest values provided by the evolution models by Baraffe et al. (2003) and BT-Settl model atmosphere Allard et al. (2012).
