As the number of large scale ground-and space-bound planet detection and imaging projects is growing, the need for theoretical guidance in order to optimize instrumental design is rapidly mounting. In an effort to provide this required framework, we present the results of Monte Carlo simulations of the formation of giant planets and compare them with the current population of exoplanets. Our models show that due to the severe current observational detection bias only a small percentage (3.6 %)doi:10.1017/s1743921306009008 fatcat:d5rzy6kgznd65hddgmgzdaiyhe
