angle-mixed methods

In the morning with Rix and later in the day with Michael Perryman (ESA, Leiden) I discussed the likely failure of angle-mixed approaches to inferring the Milky Way dynamics from a kinematic snapshot. Rix still believes we should do the Oort problem (measuring the disk potential locally) because that is likely to be close to angle-mixed, at least for some populations. I spent the other parts of the day writing, with the exception of a break in which Roberto Decarli (MPIA) explained to Tsalmantza and me how our spectral modeling could revolutionize the study of black-hole binaries. We are going to pursue that next week.
