Lifetime of triple systems. We plot the fraction of triple systems that have not dissolved yet into a permanent binary and escaping single star configuration, as a function of simulation time (in units of crossing time). The color coding is the same as in Figure 5. The grey curves through the data points represent the interpolated Hermite results with a time-step parameter \(\eta= 2^{-5}\).
