Diggle, Peter J. and Ribeiro, Paulo J. and Schlather, Martin S. (2004) Detecting dependence between marks and locations of marked point processes. Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series B (Statistical Methodology), 66 (1). pp. 79-93. ISSN 1369-7412Full text not available from this repository.
We introduce two characteristics for stationary and isotropic marked point proces- ses, E(h) and V(h), and describe their use in investigating mark–point interactions. These quantities are functions of the interpoint distance h and denote the conditional expectation and the conditional variance of a mark respectively, given that there is a further point of the process a distance h away. We present tests based on E and V for the hypothesis that the values of the marks can be modelled by a random field which is independent of the unmarked point process. We apply the methods to two data sets in forestry.
