Table 5: Expected total numbers of ERS with polarized intensity ≥ over the full sky at Planck frequencies. For each Planck channel, the minimum and maximum values here indicated refer to our predictions calculated by the more “optimistic” and by the more “conservative” cases previously discussed (see Table 4).
