A note on robust density estimation for spatial point patterns

Peter J. Diggle

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The author's earlier analytical results on the robustness of distance-based estimators of density are supplemented by a simulation study, with particular attention being given to various types of aggregated spatial point patterns. In addition, some remarks on heterogeneous patterns are made. Finally, the results of an application to data on tree locations are described.
