By R. D. Jeffries and P. F. L. Maxted

Abstract

Received; accepted; published online Abstract. Using Monte Carlo simulations and published radial velocity surveys we have constrained the frequency and separation (a) distribution of very low mass star (VLM) and brown dwarf (BD) binary systems. We find that simple Gaussian extensions of the observed wide binary distribution, with a peak at 4 au and 0.6 < σlog(a/au) < 1.0, correctly reproduc
