Details

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 $x$.

Ord (1977) proposed fitting this model to forestry data when $g(a)$ has a simple ``threshold'' form. That model is implemented in our function OrdThresh. The present function Ord implements the case of a completely general Ord potential $g(a)$ specified as an S language function pot.

This is experimental.

Value

  • An object of class "interact" describing the interpoint interaction structure of a point process.
