Mean MPD tool (GD0)

This tool shows variations on the magnification probability distribution (MPD) between different realizations of the same map (for s=0).

For each κ-γ combination selected from GD0 (grey points), there are 15 different map realizations available, each produced with a different set of random microlens positions. The user can select to display each individual magnification probability distribution, and/or the mean and standard deviation from the 15 available distributions. The number of bins of the distributions can be also modified to a maximum of 400 bins.

Selected maps can be further examined by a direct database query, using the "get maps" link.
