The ‘‘Detectability Window’’ Method to Take into Account Observational Selection in the Statistics of Exoplanets Discovered through Radial Velocity Measurements

Abstract

A method of correcting the statistical data of the exoplanets discovered through radial velocity measurements is proposed. The statistical regularities of the mass and orbital period distributions of exoplanets have been analyzed.
