Ord Interaction Process Family

An object describing the family of all Ord interaction point processes

models, spatial

Advanced Use Only!

This structure would not normally be touched by the user. It describes the family of point process models introduced by Ord (1977).

If you need to create a specific Ord-type model for use in analysis, use the function OrdThresh or Ord.

Anyway, ord.family is an object of class "isf" containing a function ord.family$eval for evaluating the sufficient statistics of any Ord type point process model taking an exponential family form.
