Definition of all the dynamical populations use here as a function of their semimajor axis, eccentricity, perihelion, and aphelion (using the definitions in Carry et al. 2016; Gladman et al. 2008).

Notes. See Fig. A.1 for the distribution of these populations in the semimajor axis – eccentricity orbital element space. The numerical value of the semimajor axes a, perihelion q, aphelion Q, and mean-motion resonances (indices i:j) are for the Earth a, q, and Q at 1.0, 0.983, and 1.017 AU; for Mars Q at 1.666 AU; for Jupiter J4:1, J3:1, J5:2, J2:1, and J5:3 at 2.06, 2.5, 2.87, 3.27, 3.7 AU; and for Neptune a, N2:3, and N1:2 at 30.07, 47.7, and 39.4 AU. The somewhat arbitrary limit of 37.037 AU corresponds to the innermost perihelion that is accessible to detached KBOs (semimajor axis of N1:2 and eccentricity of 0.24).
