> When I compute the logshape and log scale based on the formulas on wikipedia's lognormal
distribution page that use empirical mean and variance, I found that the getNumericalMean()
method was not returning the empirical mean.
> However, upon just trying to reverse the shape and scale parameters in the constructor
proved to fix the problem, and the object then returns the correct empirical mean.
