Extended Data Fig. 1: SDSS posterior distributions for the best-fitting description of the angular modulation of satellite quiescence.

From: Anisotropic satellite galaxy quenching modulated by black hole activity

Extended Data Fig. 1

We fit the observed data with a cosine function with three free parameters, the average quiescent fraction fq, the amplitude of the modulation, and a re-scaling term for the expected error f. Posteriors are well behaved and allowed us to reject the null-hypothesis at a ~6σ level. Blue solid vertical lines indicate the best-fitting values and the dashed lines indicate the 1σ confidence interval.
