Statistics Seminar: Multivariate Cox processes

Start Date: February 24, 2015
End Date: February 24, 2015

Professor Rasmus WaagepetersenDepartment of Mathematical Sciences, Aalborg University
 
his talk is an introduction to multivariate spatial point processes and approaches to statistical analysis of multivariate point pattern data. We will discuss various bivariate summary statistics quantifying dependence within pairs of point processes and the limitations of these in the general multivariate case. We subsequently discuss various statistical models for multivariate point processes including hierarchical models as well as Gibbs and Cox processes. We conclude by a case study considering a multivariate point pattern of locations of tropical rain forest trees.his talk is an introduction to multivariate spatial point processes and approaches to statistical analysis of multivariate point pattern data.

Biography: Rasmus Waagepetersen obtained his Ph.D. in mathematical statistics in 1997 from Aarhus University. He subsequently was a scientist of the Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences until 2000. From 2000 an onwards he has been at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Aalborg University, where he became a full professor in 2010. Rasmus Waagepetersen’s research interests are spatial statistics with a special focus on spatial point processes, estimating functions and random effects models. Rasmus Waagepetersen is a co-author of the monograph `Statistical inference and simulation for spatial point processes’
