Fig. 4


Cumulative size distribution of each SSO population for current census (solid lines) and synthetic populations (average estimates represented by the dashed lines, upper and lower estimate not plotted for clarity). The number of known objects that is observable at the limiting apparent magnitude of Euclid over the entire celestial sphere is represented by the dot-dashed lines. The open squares and circles represent the 0, 25, 50, 75, and 100% marks of the (HV) cumulative probability function at the saturation and photon-starving ends. The total number of objects expected on the sky is marked by the filled circles. The difference between these filled circles and the current census represents the margin for discovery.

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.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
