I only have it a quick read, but it seems reasonable.

I would suggest trying %matplotlib nbagg instead of inline.

I would recommend using one of the new style sheets for more aesthetic
plots. First impressions and whatnot...

There are two sets of plots that probably could be better. The first is the
histogram. The auto limits is causing its x-axis to start at -2 instead of
zero. I think this is fixed in master, but it might be good to have the
autoscaling be tight (there are a variety of ways to do this). Second, the
code for the very last plot seems overly complicated. I am pretty sure you
don't need to be shifting the bars yourself anymore. I know it used to be
required, but I am pretty sure we fixed that, I think. (if not, we really
should fix it).
