Observed and Intrinsic Properties of Binary Stars Orbits

We have analyzed the effects that the process of spectroscopic binary detection can introduce on the known statistics of these stars. Performing a Monte Carlo simulation, we have studied the possibility of having a 100% spectroscopic binarity. We show the biases in the period and mass ratio distribu...

Sumario:We have analyzed the effects that the process of spectroscopic binary detection can introduce on the known statistics of these stars. Performing a Monte Carlo simulation, we have studied the possibility of having a 100% spectroscopic binarity. We show the biases in the period and mass ratio distribution introduced by a search for binaries on such a population.
