Abstract

We are delighted that our article prompted Denk to pursue the issues discussed in his comment. We will explain briefly the reasons for our belief that the diffusion models he discusses cannot be meaningfully applied to the data that were available to us. We also wish to amplify our intended storyline slightly.
