Fig. 9


Comparison between predictions from the models B08, J08, J08e, and M12 and our measurements for the case of merger simulations with a reduced orbital energy of 4/3 and mass ratios 1:1 and 3:1 (panels a and b, respectively), and for equal-mass mergers with an initial energy of 2.0 (panel c) as a function of the initial orbital circularity of the satellites. All ratios are shown with different offsets around the true values of є for clarity.
