Observed cumulative distributions of sin i and the associated model distributions assuming isotropic and cone distributions (see Jackson et al. 2010) for the inclination angle. See Table 3 for the (α, λ) parameters used in the cone distributions. The error bars correspond to 1σ limits derived from the random simulations of the theoretical CDFs. To avoid crowding, we show them only for the isotropic distributions because the errors for the cone distributions are very similar.

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.
