Distributions of means (left), modes (centre), and medians (right) for a series of 104 posteriors calculated for a star at a true distance of 100 pc and f = 0.2, and observed parallaxes drawn at random from the corresponding Gaussian distribution. Posteriors are inferred with a uniform density prior truncated at 1 kpc (grey) or with a uniform density with exponential decay prior and length scale 1.35 kpc (blue). The red vertical line marks the true parallax; the grey and blue lines correspond to the expected value (mean) of each distribution (same colours as for the histograms).

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.
