matching point sets to point sets

In between seminars by Baldauf (Zurich) and Goldreich (Caltech), I worked on a proposal I intend to send to Andreas Küpper (Bonn) about doing probabilistic fitting of tidal tails. I am trying to get a summary document together and then discuss how to share data and code. With his model for steady-state tidal disruption and my probability foo, I think we can learn more (and more accurately) from the Palomar 5 stream than anyone has before. I hope he agrees!

  1. This is a hard problem. I remember reading this Saha paper on it and wondering how to do better. Good luck with it.
