Asteroid Size Distribution
The differential size distribution of Main Belt asteroids normalized by
its value for D=10 km. The solid and dashed lines for analytic
estimates, and error bars for nonparametric estimates, are for red
(rocky) and blue (carbonaceous) asteroids respectively. The dot-dashed
lines are added to guide the eye and correspond to power-law size
distributions with indices 4 and 2.3.
