Creates an instance of Ord's point process model which can then be fitted to point pattern data.

`OrdThresh(r)`

r

Positive number giving the threshold value for Ord's model.

An object of class `"interact"`

describing the interpoint interaction
structure of a point process.

Ord's point process model (Ord, 1977) is a Gibbs point process of infinite order. Each point \(x_i\) in the point pattern \(x\) contributes a factor \(g(a_i)\) where \(a_i = a(x_i, x)\) is the area of the tile associated with \(x_i\) in the Dirichlet tessellation of \(x\). The function \(g\) is simply \(g(a) = 1\) if \(a \ge r\) and \(g(a) = \gamma < 1\) if \(a < r\), where \(r\) is called the threshold value.

This function creates an instance of Ord's model with a given
value of \(r\). It can then be fitted to point process data
using `ppm`
