time-domain astrophysics; changing variables

I spent an hour or so talking about summer projects with Mykytyn, who will be paid to work on the Galex Photon Catalog and related matters in time-domain astrophysics. I also pitched some possible side projects involving machine learning, old-school statistics, and astrophysics. I spent a short time talking with Foreman-Mackey about the difference between a probability density in R and the same density but in lnR. Trivial, of course, but visually (and sometimes pretty conceptually) very different somehow. We decided to put both in the final results of our paper on Earth Analogs (coming soon!).
