Two-sample K-S tests on distributions obtained by Hermite and Brutus . We compare distributions of dissolution time (top left), escaper speed (top right), binary semimajor axis (bottom left) and binary eccentricity (bottom right)). The color coding is the same as in Figure 5. Two-sample K-S tests are performed and the p-value is plotted versus Hermite time-step parameter η. The dashed line represents the 5% significance level. For \(\eta< 2^{-5}\), the distributions are not significantly different.
