#' @title Rotational Velocity of Stars
#' @description  A sample of rotational velocities of stars from Hoffleit and 
#' Warren (1991) similar to that previosly considered by Pal, Woodroofe and Meyer (2007)
#' and used by Koenker and Mizera (2010).  The \code{demo(velo)} illustrates fitted
#' densities for three relatively weak concavity constraints corresponding to
#' \eqn{-1/sqrt(f)}, \eqn{-1/f} and \eqn{-1/f^2} constrained to be concave.
#' Note that last of these pushes the optimization methods about as far as they can do.
#' @usage velo
#' @format  A numeric vector with 3933 observations on one variable.
#' \itemize{
#'     \item{\code{velo}}{a numeric vector with rotational velocities.}
