Flare frequency distribution (FFD) of energies between 1e33 and 1e36 ergs for Proxima Centauri . The blue, purple, brown and red lines represent the FFD using Davenport et. al (2019) model , at 1 Myr, 10 Myr, 100 Myr and 1Gyr. The orange line represents the Lacy et. al (1976) model, where the FFD is constant along the stellar age.
