Comment(by josefpktd):

 when using transformation of variables, we *have* to multiply by the
 factor (in linear transformation) or determinant of derivative (in
 nonlinear, multivariate transformation).
 (a bit handwaving in nonlinear or multivariate case)

 If we multiply, then we have a "proper" pdf: we should have identical pdf
 as wikipedia and it has to integrate to 1.
