Abstract

Several tools have been developed for the analysis of the results of direct imaging exoplanet surveys, mostly using a combination of Monte-Carlo simulations or a Bayesian approach. Here we present a novel approach to the statistical analysis of Direct Imaging surveys, called Quick-MESS, which allows for a much faster and flexible analysis.
