structure in point sets, brown dwarfs

The MPIA was abuzz today with talk about finding structures in point sets with non-trivial error properties. This, of course, relates to the identification of streams and satellites in the Milky Way halo, which has been an industry for the last few years, since the discovery of Willman 1 at NYU in 2005. Lang was consulted, as our computational statistics expert.

Lang and I also made the list of low-mass star (including brown dwarf) candidates from our proper motion work into a LaTeX table for publication.
