PHAT Camp, day three

I worked a bit more on the math behind variable-rate Poisson processes with censoring; the final tidying up on the work we have done over the last few days. In the meantime, Weisz and Gordon worked on getting code to infer the present-day mass function in various M31 stellar clusters. So all goes according to plan. In the afternoon, Christy Tremonti entertained Hennawi's group meeting with some very strange, very compact, very energetic post-starburst galaxies. They seem to have enormous ultraviolet fluxes but no emission lines. How is that possible?
