This is a summary of the features of
`R`

for the statistical analysis of spatial point patterns.

- hypothesis tests and diagnostics

`formula`

in the `R`

language, and are fitted using
a single function `ppm`

analogous to
`lm`

and `glm`

.
It is also possible to fit cluster process models by the method of
minimum contrast.
